I was lurking in the icon_tutorial community last night and with a struck of good luck, I stumbled upon a tutorial on Photoshop curves. This little guy has always baffled me. Heck if I know how to use it. Seems too overwhelmingly complicated, but ah, I played around with it today and wowser, is it powerful.
Armed with a camera and good, sunny November weather, I was photographing the ugliest of things and transforming them into wonderful art.
