This is a photo I am trying to fix for my portrait project in my photography class.  I'm sort of new to editing things in photoshop so if anyone has any suggestions or comments please feel free to give me your opinion.

Here's the original photo:


p9nk is my favorite colahh

I was taking pictures by the train tracks with Randy for my photo class. Ran into this girl hangin out with her friends by the graffiti wall. When i saw her i KNEW i could get a good shot of her.

She agreed to let me take pictures of her but i only got 3 quick shots before she got really nervous and was done! The whole thing was really funny for me and i enjoy how the picture turned out too.

I drew an EYE

Fooling around in my sketchbook at work, i snatched an 08 Men's Health magazine to find something to draw. The cover was a high contrast black and white portrait of Aaron Eckhart (twoface from the dark knight) and decided this would be an awesome picture to draw.

For my GDS 120 sketchbook assignment, we HAVE to use a fine point pen so i decided to go with that. After many failed attempts i got really frustrated, because you CANT ERASE and that SUCKS! i always started the drawing at the eyes because those are the most fun part of the face to draw, but got this far and stopped. I was too afraid to mess this one up so i decided to stop. Unfortunately, I've been too scared to attempt to finish it. :)

I fooled around a bit with this picture in photoshop trying to get the shadows and highlights to look cool.

I took these photos back in September using Derek's camera. These guys were from Detroit and Arizona doing bike shows around the country. They were in Champaign for a couple days and KILLED the skatepark.
