Making Not Taking Photographs

Backstage views on making photographs professionally

Family support for Mom, 91

Posted by Mike on November 8, 2008

Carmela Rinaldi is 91 and slipping away. She still has fun though. Freddie the dog is her constant companion. Her children and grand children are taking care of her 24-7. People are at home for dinner. Hospice visits. Her doctor makes house calls. High quality Italian food tastes and smells permeate her home.

I cheated a bit on this photo by combining two pictures. I really needed both Freddie and Carmela in focus. So I shot two shots, each at a different point of focus, combined them in layers and layer masked away what I didn’t want.

2-27-09 Update: Carmela passed away today.
