My camera(s). Me. Allies. :0)

This photo came about because my Mom said she wanted a picture of me in my new hat. So, I decided to take a pic facing the mirror & then got creative. I added the Dramatic filter in Virtual Photographer, cropped some and flipped the image horizontal so Canon would read the right way.

Well I don't know if your mom is gonna like the camera in your face, but hey, you got the hat on! Great editing and you got very pretty eyes girl!

By the way my mom keeps bugging me for a good portrait too, but it just don't sound so appealing..
