    I needed some new pictures for profile pictures on my blog, etc, so yesterday I thought I'd try doing some self-portraits. In the afternoon, the light comes in one of the windows in my room just right, so I thought I'd see if I could use it. I normally don't like pictures of me, but out of about fifty that I tried, I found a few that I thought were acceptable... mostly I just really liked the lighting. I think in the last one, the sun must have gone behind a cloud for a moment. Let me know what y'all think, or what I could do differently next time, etc.

    Will you all stop posting pictures of yourself! You're not doing my heart any good by making it beat so fast!

    You have a very nice smile. Don't be frightened to show your face.
    Next time I'd try to reflect more light into the shadows. They're pretty harsh at the moment.

    I would suggest not having such a harsh light... I love the last one! (then again maybe it's just because I can see more of you) :wink: :mrgreen:

    Welcome to the forums btw! :D

    the first is great but the last one is perfect, full of character which in my opinion is what self-portraits should have.

    I can't help it. There's nothing more frustrating than seeing a girl not recognise how good she looks. I don't mean that in a dirty old man way (I'm not old and only borderline a man). It's just so depressing. I just want to pick them up and give them a cuddle. :(

    The same holds true for men, they just tend to be less vocal about it. I have several male friends (and a fiancee, too) who say that they aren't good looking and no matter what I say don't believe otherwise.
