The Angel

A photo manipulation and layering exercise, with multiple elements from various sources. The angel is my own gorgeous little girl aged around nine at the time, wearing a simple white dress and shot in the studio of a photography colleague.

The fairy wing was found in a Fremantle craft shop, photographed against a black background (a trampoline standing on its side in my front yard), painstakingly deep etched, duplicated and positioned. The balcony was found in the grounds of the Cottesloe Civic Centre Grounds in Perth, the dress and arms of the figure deep etched to show through the gaps.

The cloud background was taken from my house, the rainbow and halo elements were both created using drawing and blur effects in Illustrator and Photoshop, and it was all combined in layers in Photoshop.
