My Brother, Boe…

My mom has a frame which holds a recent photo of each of her 3 children but the one of my brother, Boe, was seriously in need of some updating.  So last time I was at my parents’, I was able to coax my him into letting me take some pictures of him.  I had him move his truck into better lighting but still being a nervous and learning photographer, I only took 3 shots, all in basically the same position.  Good thing I loved the first one. 

And what I loved even more though, was playing with the image in photoshop.  I’m not much for creative editing – I choose to stick with clean edits of my kids.  But when you have an image like this… and a guy like this, a normal edit just won’t do…  he is in a band after all… and drives a very loud truck…Boe1 Boe2

I had more fun changing the effects of this one photo than I have in a long time! 

I think the best part of the process though, was that I got to stare at my big brother the whole time.  I don’t see him nearly often enough and everyday I have an aching to catch up with him.  So, while I love the images, I love the guy in um even more. 

I may just make him my computer’s wallpaper…
