I've never taken photos of people for portrait purposes other than one for a friend for an ID and another of me for my passport many years ago. I've seen some really cool self-portraits on this site and I thought I'd have a go at 'em. Here's my first attempt - it was just a quickie shot that I had a little fun with in Photoshop. I'm going to try for some better ones tomorrow, but I'd be interested in any feedback you folks may have on this. I actually can't really decide which one of these two I like more - one is full-color and the other is 80% desaturated except for the eyes. P.S. I've avoided doing this in the past because I think I'm incredibly un-photogenic. So, don't tell me I look ugly, just lemme know what you think of the actual photo.
