27 MAY 09
My plan had been to post semi-regular self-portraits. A way to chronicle my changes. My first self-portrait went up in February, and I figured it was time to post another.
Unfortunately, my weight loss quest hasn't gone as well as I'd hoped, and I just couldn't bring myself to take another photo of myself. I've lost weight, just not as much as I'd hoped. So I compromised (I seem to be doing a lot of that lately!) with a photo of just my eyes.
Post-processing: LOTS! A closeup of my aging skin isn't exactly a good thing. :-D Noise reduction, sharpening, gaussian blur to soften the skin, and I brightened my eyes using levels then added a border.
