I'm No Dummy

Wait for it. ;-)

I had this kind of fun concept of being one of the foam heads I use to hold wigs and other photo props for the past weekend's #SelfySunday . So I set it up, captured what I needed, and then worked on it in Lightroom and Photoshop so I could blend my face onto one of the foam heads. The whole process was fun and I was very happy with the way it turned out! The stand-alone image can be viewed in the Event here: http://goo.gl/OXzyLO  

While I was shooting, I decided to do a few extra poses so that I could create a kind of fun gif in Photoshop, as well. That's what you see here. Looks best enlarged, in my opinion, and make sure you give it time to fully load. What do you think? It makes me laugh. :)

like the wind through my hair
thoughts of you blow
through my mind
and like the sunshine on my face
a warm glow blossoms
in my heart

Have a great weekend, guys. :)
