The games we play....

....With Editing Software...

Tonight I decided to have a little fun with photos from a shoot I did with my friend Elizabeth last September, I modeled in one of her bridemaids dresses, and we took the shoot out to the streets near her home, at nearly four a.m. No traffic, no interuptions, and plenty of street light...the goal this evening was to create the effects of high gloss spot color graphic novels without acting as a direct imitation of anything I'd seen before. The results were something I liked for better than I could have anticipated...


In fact, I am seriously considering using this image as my etsy icon. The last image in this post. It is me after all, and the best items in my shop contain (In my opinion) either intense black and whites, are wild popping colors.

Yes, I've received lots of good comments on the eye, y current avatar, but I've also received lots of strait forward notifications that other people have avatars that look like mine, or that the idea of an eye leading to a photography shop is the Internet's equivalent to a bad pun. Anyhow, I'd appreciate any words to the wise on the image to the side, as always,

I think the above image would make a great banner/avi for your store! I've seen other eye avi's around too, so for differentiation, I'd definitely go with the new image! Nicely done!
