My oldest cousin and his normal drum playing. I asked him to wear the glasses and he agreed to allow me to take photos.

I had the camera set on High ISO to minimize the blurring of his movements, thus creating noise in the photo. None the less, a decent picture.

Levels, Contrast, Hue, Crop, and resize.

The image is really grainy but you usually get that when you make the pictures black and white, so next time go with color. Focus more on the glasses and zoom in on the face more.

I like the action shot. I wish the background wasn't so noisy.

It makes me want to get earplugs the amount of noise in this, but it catches the moment and I think its pretty good.

The blur on the hands is ok but the face is too soft and there's too much noise in the image.

I really like this picture, it's very very cool, but it's a bit too grainy for me.
