There really is quite a difference between black and white and black and white.
Whenever I get the chance to teach photoshop I try to inform people about how to desaturate their photographs correctly. I think the upper picture looks so strange! And that's just by turning the magenta tone a tad wrong. Apart from the BW it's a 4 second exposure... so half my face is on half my face. Hah.
And - it seems that the braid GIF has been re-blogged and re-tumblred and what now over 40 000 times (and counting) - without any directions back to me. Please, please, if you reblog my photos, respect the copyright and link back to me. Thank you!
