Class Exercise: Select a hi-res image from this folder. Experiment with different tone, color, lighting, and/or image tweaking options we discussed in class. Create 5 different versions of the image. Do not add another image to it. This lesson is all about tweaking an existing photo to change its tone and voice, make it more unique, and/or more relevant to your idea. - Neil
