So this is not a new picture it is from Christmas, but I just "found" it on my computer. It was extremely underexposed almost to the point of not being able to see anything in the picture. It was the first shot out of the camera that day, before I even checked my settings. Somehow it managed to be missed my some of my deleting sessions since then. So when I saw it this morning I thought I would see what I could do to it in photoshop. Luckily I shot in raw so I could do a lot to save exposure, etc. It turned out to be really grainy, but something about how his eyes looked in the photo still intrigued me. So I kept playing. It is not the clearest picture, but I think it shows how sometimes noise can add to the picture. It almost looks like a texture. Just thought I would share...maybe a not so perfect picture at first glance can turn into something worth keeping. Happy Saturday! Good luck everyone with the 365, one week down!
...just edited to add the original for comparison.


  1. I love his whole expression - great save on this picture!

  2. A photo well worth the save! I was thinking the same thing about it looking like a texture. It's adorable!
