Andrea Reider, Self Portraits, January 2015

I let my seven-year-old nephew use my good camera today to cajole this photo out of him. He thought it was funny to keep taking pictures of my headless body.

I adjusted the colors in the following photograph to bring out natural highlights and maybe reduce some flaws and lines.

I altered the colors quite a bit in this photograph to end up with an image that looks to me more like a colorful painting than a photograph. I mostly adjusted the brightness and contrast, and the red and yellow levels.

Of course, I see all of the flaws in my face and the images, but I hope there’s something useful or instructive here.
