Natural light photographer, I thrive on these fleeting moments where the love, joy, or soul shows. My artistic background is always showing through my photography work. You will get the more formal portraits, they are after all, what we are looking for at first . But beyond that, candid moments, soulful mood, unexpected places is also what I want to bring out... I hope you'll like my photographic vision...
Sincerely,
Isabelle ♥

Legacy...










Legacy \leg-a-cy\n, pl. -cies
1. money or property that is left to somebody in a will
2. something that is handed down or remains from a previous generation or time

I love antiques and old, vintage objects, first of all they have that timeless beauty, but most of all they have a history... How many people sang and played on this old piano? How many people shared laughter or pain around this dining room furniture? How many clothes this sewing machine created? If these objects could tell all their stories, it sure would be amazing... I would listen!


This dining room furniture has been given to me by my grand-mother, Évangéline. She was born in the early 1900's and it was her wedding present. I love it so much! The sewing machine was from her too, I still use it from time to time, it still works perfectly!


I used two actions for processing the piano/furniture collage. The first was an orange action, to give it some warmth. It was from LittleMissPatricia's actions, those you can find here... http://www.flickr.com/groups/764485@N25/

Then I used my favorite vintage action, from a set provided by LustDrunk on DeviantArt... http://lustdrunk.deviantart.com/art/Photoshop-Action-Set-o1-63357791

Have fun playing with those actions, and love your old treasures...

What a great group of photos Isabelle.
I love the antiques and collectables too. You can just imagine the stories that go with them. And everything was made so well too!
