I am STOKED to announce the winners of the 10,000 YouTube Subscribers Giveaway! I was BLOWN away by not only how many people entered the competition, but the quality of entries. You guys have some serious skills in photo manipulation! After careful deliberation, I feel like I’ve chosen some stellar winners. The Runner-Up prize of an embroidered Cartoon Network bag stuffed with an Adventure Time tshirt and Caplunk party game goes to: MISTY BRUCE! I loved the fire effect, the Mortal Kombat reference, my lower body, and the burning Rebecca.
And the grand prize of a Samsung TL225 Dual View camera goes to this entry submitted by KAJUS PAVARDE! I loved the composition, the black and white, the aged look, the fun epaulettes, cigarette, and accordian. Kind of makes you wonder if Rebecca Black would be as annoying in 1927 as she is right now? Really awesome photochop, Kajus! Enjoy the camera!
And here are all the amazing photochop entries for you to peruse, argue over, and enjoy!
So as many of you know, I ventured north to Yosemite National Park this last week for some much needed outdoorsy, shower-less stink action. I had never been there but have always wanted to go. Now that I live in LA, it’s a short 4 hour jaunt to the park’s entrance, then another 45 min. breathtaking mountain ride to the park’s main hub, Yosemite Valley. It was here that we set up camp in the North Pines camping area. Yosemite National Park pretty much ruined my life by revealing what could be the most spectacular place on earth…WITH PICTURES (click any to enlarge)!
Here are some examples of some recent pieces I made for family members for the holidays. The first piece is titled “Sweet Dreams” and was for my brother and sister-in-law. It features their brand new baby, Clinton Andrew Newberry, born July 9th, 2009.

My improv team that I play with every week at iOWest, Kitty Porn, recently did a photoshoot. I had a concept on how I wanted the photos to look and was amped to add some new work to my portfolio, both photographic and graphic design wise. The following are the results. They make me hard.
The photographs utilized a technique called, “HDRI”, or High Dynamic Range Imaging. I’ve messed with it before, but never to this extent. I wanted to avoid the need to shoot 3+ photographs at a time so I opted to take one well lit still of each individual team member and rely on my photoshop tricks to give me a similar effect.
