Anyway, it's high time to do something with this page, and until my D5100 arrives, pretty photos won't be high priority. Shenanigans, on the other hand shall. Also, I think it's time for a facelift...

The newest of my beers is almost ready to bottle, it's good. Really good. Good enough that just so I don't have to share, I'm going to brew another ten gallons as Christmas gifts. It's dark and complex. The longer it's on your palate the more layers it has. Its like swimming through the mind of a psychopath, the deeper you go the darker it gets. Yet you can't turn back because the intrigue is so strong.
Being the epic nerd that I am, I decided to dedicate this beer and it's lable to one of my all time favorite comics, Arkham Asylum by Grant Morrison and Dave McKean. If you haven't read it and you're a fan of the Dark Knight, I highly recommend it.
And with that I leave you with the finished image, enjoy.

So I've spent my evening picking through misc. tutorials and I came across this technique in one of them, and it's possibly one of the cheapest most simple ways I've ever encountered to give your stock images that "I have a way better camera than you" look. So here's how it works, load up your image in Photoshop, then duplicate the background layer. Desaturate this layer then set the blending mode to Overlay. Boom, your stock just doubled in value. Really all it's doing is adding an extra level of contrast to your image, but its a fast, efficient way to bump up the quality of your image. Hope it helps :) The image shows the original on the left, and the new image on the right.
Edit: Ok so apparently everyone on the face of the planet knew this but me. That is all.
Product of a little PS tutorial I took. Didn't turn out quite as I'd hoped however since the tutorial was about brush creation, I didn't bother putting too much extra time into the composition. Nonetheless, feel free to rip it off as a desktop or what not.
Edit: HA! RGB is your friend.

Blah. I set out today with the intent of finding any and all graffiti in this city today, and I'm telling you, it just doesn't exist. Not on the trains, not on the walls, it's like the Stepford wives have joined the anti graffiti crew. I went out for three hours today and this is all I shot. Have you ever wondered what "one of those days" actually meant? Well today basically defined it for me. The world looked bland through my lens today and my hands were shaken to boot. I can't tell if I had too much or too little coffee, but i couldn't focus my camera to save my life. In trying to stay true to form and post every day I shot and filtered this fantastically poor image below to portray what the rest of my evening will consist of...

This is old news but seeing as how I'm in this video I think it's still within my right to spew it all over my blog and force it on you good people. Be sure to visit the G.R.L Utah page as well. And I might add that we stood around in below freezing temps for three hours to shoot this vid, so you'd better enjoy it. Or else.G.R.L. Reporting Live From Sundance from fi5e on Vimeo.
