Youth!

View It Larger Here.

 

It seems like forever since I've posted anything. The last few weeks have been pretty chaotic. None the less, I have been trying to keep up with the creativity.

 

This is a picture I took last year of a kid hanging out down the street from my house. I've been trying to learn the subtleties of the adjustment brush in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2 to perform basic dodging and burning. It's amazing how with the adjustment brush and exposure settings you can basically paint with light (see the 'before' picture below).

 

I've also been working on a new stop motion movie for the DJ project 'Dark Matter Noise.' It's been a great learning experience using Lightroom as a part of my workflow. As soon as I post the movie to Vimeo, I'll also post some of the photographs from the project to Flickr.

 

Thanks for your patience. In the meantime, it's been great cruising around and looking at all your photos.
