Take a retro-wallpaper, retro-shirt (actually for girls, but I don't care), retro-glasses, my hubby and some gel, and then you get this.

I really had a hard time getting no reflections in the glasses, so I decided to do it like this. Probably because I took the shot from above.

Thank you hubby!!!


b/w layer at 65%, curves layer, brightness / contrast for saving for web. Had some troubles with the colors, but this is the closest I could get.

Nice perspective and focus on the glasses and eyes.

I like the angle. The face is over-exposed and merging into the background.

my preference would have been for more contrast in the image. I do like the idea though
