Converted to antique grayscale using split toning, tone curve, and gray scale mix(?). Then layered a paper texture as multiply.

Alright, I kind of feel like talking so I am.
I'll be back posting my 365 on Monday so there's something you can all look forward to. ;p
Oh, also for those who read my twitter/facebook where I got my lights. Well, it's going to be a bit before I get those. I accidentally stuck the wrong zip code for my address, and it was sent to the next county over. Its kind of a long story, but I'm just waiting for them to return all the money.

Now for some photography stuff.
Don't know if anybody caught Zack Arias' Video last week, for Scott Kelby's Wednesday guest post, but it was awesome. Really makes you think.

Chase Jarvis also wrote on the whole Facebook and your photos thing. It's why I don't have any photos on my facebook.

Also D-town premired this week. I've got be honest I could give a flip about this, but I like to keep myself informed.

Strobist also gave the low down on the new PW's. They look sweet, but man, are they expensive.

Twipphoto talked about the differance between CF vs. SD. They also had a poll on the CF vs. SD issue. I can't even use SD so it's not a real problem for me. I also know Nikon uses them though. What's your thoughts on 'em?

Oh, and DIYphotography's having a three year anniversary contest.

Well, I think that's it. (for now) There's a ton of other stuff out there, but I'll reframe myself.

Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting

They held a braille reading and typing competition held at FSU recently.  It would blow your mind.  These kids are like ninjas.  You try reading 9 pages of braille and then retyping it perfectly.
