Miriam's Photo Art: a second installment

As soon as we got back to Tucson from Middlebury, Miriam set to work brushing up her Photo Booth skills. She is quite the pro, as you may recall from her photo art debut.

Remember, she set up, chose the effects for, and took all of these pictures by herself.

This one looks like it needs to be titled Lonelygirl15 or whatever.

This is one of my new favorites. In case you're not familiar with Photo Booth, it comes with a few set backgrounds such as the Eiffel Tower, a beach scene, a roller coaster, etc. The way it is supposed to work is that you select the background, move out of the shot (while the computer establishes a "green screen" of sorts), and then move back in so it looks like you're there. Miriam doesn't understand that you're supposed to move away from the computer, so the background ends up choppy like this. But what I love about this particular picture are all the random bits that made it onto the moon. There's even a random baby head orbiting the earth.

This is another Miriam Special. One of the Photo Booth effects duplicates the image four times and tints each with a different color. A separate setting will take four consecutive shots and combine them. Miriam selected both options to create what you see above. Genius!

This is possibly my all-time favorite. The mittens are a nice touch, don't you think?

Someday soon I'll have to do a video installment of Miriam's Photo Art. Yes, Photo Booth does video, and Miriam has learned how to use it.
