Children’s portrait tips, Part I
Thursday, March 26th, 2009
Increasingly, couples who want to see their kid immortalized are hiring online services to “turn treasured photos into high-quality digital paintings by putting them through a cheesy Photoshop filter.” I’m paraphrasing. More discerning parents want the real thing, but are wary of the risks involved in commissioning an original oil or charcoal rendering of their child. Follow these simple dos and donts:
1. DON’T inadvertently commission a watermelon portrait.
2. DO encourage your child to look alert.
3. DON’T over-pluck your child’s eyebrows.
