Godfather by theederv Godfather by theederv
My son and my best friend (his godfather)

This was shot on my son's 3rd birthday & is 333 kilobytes, now thats special!

It was also shot using a mobile phone but edited in PS

Daddy loves you Louis

There have been alot of questions about this piece being shot on a phone, it was shot on my 1.3MP Nokia 6630 (exif Data True), i took it into photoshop and added about 12-15 adjustment layers Hue/Saturation/etc Painted out the noise in both the clouds and the subjects. There were a couple of extra cloud layers put in to try and give the image more mood as it were
