So, I'm totally in love with grungy photo effects. I've found a ton of tutorials showing different techniques to get a dark, grity effect and I LOVE THEM. I am somewhat happy with this self-portrait I did yesterday. Honestly, I kind of forgot that I was supposed to do a self-portrait this month and ack! it's the end of February. I want to do more self portraits using effects like this. I am happiest with the way my eyes look in this photo. There are a lot of ways you can brighten up parts of your photo while leaving most of it dark to draw attention to a focal point. Viva la grunge.
