For those who don't already know, I LOVE books.

This self portrait actually didn't require much in the way of editing. I took two exposures in the same location and merged them, added a few layers of color and mixed channels on greyscale. I also added a vignette and burned my shadow in photoshop. I was in the shade, so there wasn't enough shadow in the original to make it believable.

The lens flare was not added nor was it an error in post production. =)
