BPR Top Pics of 2012: Number Twenty-Four

Number Twenty-Four: Matt and David...It's Magic (click image to enlarge)

Most people—well, most guys, anyway, heh—will no doubt wonder A) what’s this pic doing on a list like this? and B) how can this pic possibly be considered “better” than the pic of Beth the preceded this one at Number 25. Well, again, this list is not about the “best” pics in the sense of proper composition and lighting, etc…it’s about my “favorite” pics. And that doesn’t always follow a proper structure. This is one of my favorites because of its spontaneity; David (the one with the, um, hair) just started doing that randomly while Matt was running the console while the band was playing. I’m not even sure Matt was aware of what David was doing; I think he just saw me aiming the camera at him out of the corner of his eye.

I quickly realized I had to do something in post special effects-wise to take the pic to that other level. Thank you, Photoshop. Though I don’t remember what filter or effect I used to make David’s and Matt’s head glow like that…Posterize? Huh. I should start taking notes on these. (UPDATE: I went back and started experimenting to see what matched…it’s Glowing Edges. Of course.)
