Photo Fun

I like to explore all forms of art. Photography is one of my favorites. Its a way to show your point of view in a way that's raw and gritty especially in black and white. You connect with the camera just as you would your paint brush or pencil. It becomes an extention of your eyes and hands. Creating an image that is a reflection of what goes on in your head. You can leave the finished product as what shows up on the film or you can edit it to make it give the message you want to send.
​Photo editing is really fun once you get the hang of it. I am by no means the master of Photo Shop but with the skills I learned in digital video class I can make some pretty cool images. At first photo shop for me was a little intimidating but its not as hard as it seems. For this photo I wanted a edgy pop art confetiti look to the picture so I really just adjusted the lighting levels. Also around the eyes I went in and filled the area in with black to make the eyes stand out. And filled in the hair to frame my face.

A picture is really interesting because it captures all feelings and happening of one moment and freezes it. You can change and edit a million times but you still get the same feeling and emotion as the original.
