Hello. 24th May and number 144 in the ongoing 365 image mega series.

Taken tonight at home.

After levels adjustment and the adding of a high pass filter at three pixels the self portrait was placed onto a rust texture layer and blended with hard light and partially erased three times. Another texture layer was placed onto this and blended with overlay twice and partially erased.

The title is a reference to the Catherine Tate Show and in particular the character of Lauren.

Canon EOS 20D / Canon USM 28mm-105mm lens.

I’ve been taking photographs since 1997 and I still love it. After a brief dislike of photomanipulation I now use Photoshop extensively on a majority of my work. People are my favourite subject and I’m always on the look out for new models, so drop me a line if you’re interested! :)
