Photoshop techniques

I hate it when I create an action and then lose it. After I upgraded to CS3 I lost a few actions that I thought I had saved, but one was a technique I really liked using to tone and give a more raw effect to photos.

I just messed around for a bit to try and replicate it – not quite there, but hey if you only spend five minutes you can only expect so much…

49ers vs. Vikings
Finally shot my first NFL game which was the San Francisco 49ers vs. the Minnesota Vikings. Of course the Niners have been sucking ass, but what can you do? I did get to see Shaun Hill get his first touchdown and interception. It was a lot of fun being on the sidelines alongside notables like Peter Read Miller and the Z Man, Michael Zagaris. I kinda felt like a fool with my tiny 70-200 when everyone was shooting with 400s but hey it was fun nonetheless.

My birthday drink tickets at Qool
So I was cleaning up a little and found this old school drink ticket from Qool. I guess it was my birthday or the week of my birthday and the awesome folks at Qool made that week’s drink ticket with my image on it with a birthday wish on it too. I wonder if I can still redeem this?!
