me myself and photoshop

so i've been really wondering how some of the photographers out there are mining images and get richer detail out of images etc. it's a great illustrative tool and an key inspiration behind this is:

this kid is amazing and his work has been a real inspiration to me. i think he's only 18 years old - makes me even more impressed by him as i learn more.

some friends from work and i have been trying to understand these techniques, and finally it's making sense. so what better monkey to practice on than myself.

you can dress up a monkey, but it's still a monkey.

and on a side note, i'm not arguing the ethics of this one way or another, nor am i doing this on daily work for the paper - i think it's just great to have another tool in the pocket for illustrative purposes/freelance commericial work. it'll be interesting as this becomes more common what the general thought of it is as far as it applies to photojournalism.
