Photo Editing & Early Christmas Present

I really wanted to use one of my own photos for my header image, especially one with a lighthouse so I decided to edit one of my own in photoshop. Something I used to do all the time but that I haven’t done a whole lot of lately. I decided to start out with the above photo. I really love it but it was kind of underexposed and I just really wanted to make the red in the lighthouse pop. I am pretty happy with it.

I have been sick for the last two weeks and have been off at home after a tooth extraction gone wrong. I was too sick to do much but lay on the couch but today I am feeling a slight bit better though I still have to rest and try and get rid of the infection (more about that in a moment) but because I am feeling a tiny bit better I decided to work on a few projects. [...]  READ MORE
