Originally I wrote 'DREAM BIG' but I figured it's not enough to just dream big, you have to form concrete thoughts that can be acted upon and ultimately act upon them to realize your dreams. But 'ACT BIG' sounded stupid so perhaps 'THINK BIG' is a good compromise.

Materials and Methods
Nikon D80 + 50mm f1.8 + SB-600 for bounce lighting against the ceiling + IR remote to trigger. Chalkboard drawing in the background. Parisian Rain Simplified action + additional curves for color and contrast in post editing.

Long time no see ;P I decided to take a break from photography due to graduate school interviews taking time away from class and classwork piling up taking time from photography. But I'm pretty much back on my feet now and getting back into photos. Here's an updated self-portrait :P I'm a bit more active on FB now a days: [link] Hope everyone has been doing well :D
