Really Old Guy

A snow day for the first time in 5 years led me to photoshop because the snow was too dry to make a snowball or snowman. So I got the idea of making a snow white beard on my own picture. I used several effects in Photoshop to age my skin and make the beard and hair.

Arent You a Little Too Short to be a Stormtrooper?

This weekend I was experimenting with LED lighting and it turned into a Star Wars Series of shots. My son had a friend over and we had such a good time. As you can see in the shots, we had the fan running. The kids loved it and of course they had to scream into it, to get their voices to vibrate. Im going to experiment further with some subjects and LED lighting. Ill show the results in my next post. Have a great week everyone!

Spots on my Glass..

I ve had the Golden Goblets and A Little Tipsy shot get published on a photo website called They have a rigorous review process and I hear that its tough to get photos published there.
