Adding a person to an old photograph

December 31, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I often remove a person from a photograph, but I have never added a person before.  Every year I always help my good friend Jonathan create a one-of-a-kind Christmas card.  The past cards have always been comical.  This year Jonathan wanted to pay homage to his late grandmother.  He has this picture of her with his hometown of Cleveland in the background, and he wanted to add himself to the photograph.  You can see Jonathan's past cards here.

The photograph I took of Jonathan.  I decided to take the photograph outside and have the sun create a similar shadow as the old photograph.  I could have found a cleaner background, but I did not want to go too far.  So we did it in my front yard instead.

Here is the final edit.  I added noise and blur to match the old photograph.
