Trying To Blend In by SquarePeg

Hello. 13th August and number 225 in the ongoing 365 image mega series.

Self portrait taken tonight at home.

Black and white conversion with levels and contrast adjustment and a high pass filter layer at two pixels. Added to a texture layer and partially erased to blend it in to the wall. Given a slight sepia tone.

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! :)
