Sammy Model Face

This is what "Model Face" means in our house now. It's a parody of Sam Winchester from Supernatural. Or maybe its just a parody of Jared Padalecki.

I'll be at Electric Earth on W Wash this afternoon to just chill and do various "not-get-ready-for-Houston" things; for any people bored with nothing to do, come drink coffee and eat vegan cupcakes.

It is also likely my first victim in the SP2E photo thinger.

I love your postprocessing...it really brings out subtle detail.

I use a personalized version of this tutorial plus the Dooce Effect. There are a few other things I do too but they're rarely the same in every photo and are dictated by certain artefacts in the photo itself. If you have photoshop, you should play around with it.

Recently I've been de-saturating the final image and upping the red hues to give it that old technicolor feeling.

Now that I have figured out a bit more with my camera the next thing to do is to figure out the stolen version of Photoshop I have.

She looks kinda creepy there with the Model Face.

I'm a Photoshop ninja. I can totally help you out. Adjustment layers are your friend. But one of these days I'll actually be able to explain what the "Crves" layer really does. I do know that I use it on evey single photo I take.

Check the links above to start. Digital cross-processing kicks ass.

Thanks, online tutorials are my friends. Well... and my friends who will help me learn are also my friends. :D

Anything else you want to learn how to do? I think I explain certain nifty effects in my posts where I do something different.

I don't know what my options are so I don't really know what to look for. Right now I am just taking pictures and posting them unedited.

It looks sort of like a cross between The Blue Steel and Sammy's Bitchface. Very amusing!

Agreed!
