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!

  3. Nice self portrait! Hope you have fun in Vermont, I haven't been there since, maybe 9 years ago? It's been a while for me, too! Can't wait to see your pictures.

    Thanks for the sweet comment on my guest blog post on the English Muse, too!
