Train Ride

Last winter we took a train ride on the Thunder Mountain Express, which included this great view all the way up. :)

Processed this portrait using the sharpen tool (20, 60, 0), brought down the cyan a bit, upped the saturation and then played with the curve levels to come up with this final image.

Photoshop Effect: High Pass

I wanted to share an image I created that I think turned our rather nice. It uses the photoshop "high pass" filter (Filter>Other>High Pass - Vivid light @54% opacity) and use of some noise reduction, skin toning techniques using surface blur and some dodge/burn.

Hush, Little Baby...

Lately at night my son has been asking me to sing him a song. This is not my strong suit, but I gave it a go. Since I don't know all the words to the song, I picked Hush, little baby, don't say a word. 

So instead of using the real words I tend to make stuff up. 

Hush, little baby, don't say a word, Daddy's gonna buy you a mockingbird.
And if that mockingbird don't sing, Daddy's gonna buy you a plastic ring.
And if that plastic ring breaks apart, Daddy's gonna buy you a new go-cart.

I keep going for about 3-4 minutes and then find a way to end it. Last night I ended by saying,  "...Daddy's going tell you your on your own." 

To which he replied, "YEAH!!! Because Daddy won't have any money.

Take away: At 3 yrs old, he may a better grasp of money than I do.
