Knitted Finger Moustache Triptych

Taken for AAW (and Ravelry)

 

I found this project on Ravelry late one evening when I was trying to find errata for another pattern which was totally not working for me, and this seemed like the perfect antidote to the frustration. I was debating doing some photos with some inanimate objects like the link above shows, but I happened to check AAW and noticed today's deadline on the self-portrait assignment for this week hadn't hit yet, so... self-portrait time!

 

This being a self portrait assignment that I had an hour and a half to shoot, process and submit, it's sans-makeup or even a hairbrush. That's pretty much me on a lazy holiday Monday anyhow -- silly knitting project, a camera, a book, and a computer.

 

What it took:

These are pretty much straight out of camera aside from stitching them together for a triptych, although I admit to photoshopping the scratch on my forehead and removing a stray hair that looked weird. I didn't plan for a triptych or the eye thing, these just happened to be among the best of my "let's goof off with my silly knitting project in front of my camera with a remote" shots.

 

Things I learned:

- Putting all the photos on one layer, moving them around, then doing image->reveal all in photoshop makes triptyches *waaaay* easier. No more figuring out canvas size!

- you can resize just one layer by using ^T in photoshop, just don't forget to tell it when you're done or it acts all locked.
