I Heart Faces after all



Look! I found one in my old files! Yay for not skipping out this week after all :)

Photobucket

This is Judah at a few months old, looking very unhappy indeed in his Elephant Towel. This counts as a hat, right? Of course right! Not a very high quality shot-- from our old point and shoot. I just love his expression of disdain and disgust, so it was worth trying to fix up.

I cleaned up some noise, converted to b&w, added a duplicated and semi-translucent layer and then merged them together. A hint I learned from someone somewhere to make a b&w shot have a little more depth.

I love this picture! You are so great with the fancy photo editing! I really need to study up - you're inspiring me! I'll be even more inspired when I have a nicer camera...hmm, maybe baby #2 will convince Matt that it's worth it?
