Profile Pictures

Over the years I’ve had only a few different profile pictures.  Probably cause I don’t like pictures of myself.  I’m trying to get over that and make some self portraits, get me over that whole “I take pictures of other people but never of myself” thing.

Also, it gives me the chance to see what I can do with Photoshop, to learn new techniques and make some cool pictures.  I don’t really care that the picture looks very little like me or the original picture, the idea is to make something totally different than the source.

I think I’m going to use this picture as a canvas to mess with. I’ve already made several other images from this picture.  It’s pretty fun.  Maybe this summer I will have time to make more pictures of people instead of the stuff I’ve been doing for my photography course.  I sure hope so.  I miss taking pictures of people.  Maybe I’ll do a whole before/after series with these portraits.  Anyone want me to take their picture?

I did this with Micheal (@mdanbom) (website) last year, wish he was still here, he has AMAZING eyes.

Alright, off to do something else.  Would love ideas for photos though!
