Hello. 21st November and number 325 in the ongoing 365 image mega series.

Self portrait taken tonight at home, converted to black and white with levels and contrast adjustment, added to a texture layer and blended with hard light twice before being partially erased at various opacities. PS7 used.

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

All Out Emotion November 2011

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! :)

    Well, the images that have been put up since it opened again have been pretty straight forward, but really even if something is heavily manipulated, it’s still art. To get the members opinions on this, go to the forums and click on Cafe, There is an article called “Where does the line between digital art and photography lie for you?” You’ll see different examples of what has been put up in the past and how people feel about it. In any case…….if you put it up and it doesn’t get a lot of positive feedback……..not really a big deal. It’s just other peoples opinions, I for one would vote for this.
