playing with color :

much of the learning curve in photography
has been the extreme ways you can adjust film
(well, digital imagery)
after you shoot it.
for example,
nearly a year after shooting them,
i found adding a vintage feel by dialing green into the lowlights
and softening the highlights with gold,
gave this shoot 
a whole new appeal:

and dialing a bit more blue into keifer grimm
gave him a slightly more menacing edge:

and that, basically,
even someone named Nero
can take a bit more black in the shadows:
most of these experiments are on skin tone,
but you can see the range,
and i promise,
i'll keep expanding.
