Graduation Picture History

This picture was actually created from three separate photos. Why? Well the reason goes like this. Mom (on the right) graduated from CSUN in the morning and Sally graduated that evening. As I was driving home, I realized that I did not have a picture of my two favorite ladies together and in their graduation gowns. Here is how I solved the problem.

I scanned in a photo of Beverly where she was standing with her sister and her mom. I then used Adobe Photoshop to cut out Beverly's sister and mom. I then scanned in a photo of Sally standing with Beverly (only Beverly was not wearing the graduation gown in the picture) and cut Beverly out of the picture, leaving Sally in her gown.

The third photo I used was just a picture of the graduation podium at Beverly's graduation ceremony. I had taken it just for grins. I scanned in the photo of the podium and then placed the cutouts of Beverly and Sally in front of the podium. If you look closely, you can see the shadow differences in their faces.

Having watched my wife and daughter graduate with honors on the same day, and from the same university, is a day I will always remember...and now I have a picture to cherish.
