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.
