Foto Friday...a little early

So I'm a day early on this post but I am leaving for Vermont bright an early in the morning. I haven't been up there and years and I am so excited. You're on your own but I'll be back early next week sometime with some great photos to share.

This weeks Souvenir Foto School assignment was portraits. This is my self portrait.

I don't usually like to alter the image other than cropping, exposure, and levels but this photo needed it. It was a little too noisy for my liking. I decided to make it a lomo looking portrait. I tried some ready made filters but didn't like the result. I found this great post on the Digital Photo Schools website on a how to in Photoshop and I am really pleased with the result.

Have a great weekend!
