    this is just a mess about really cuz im bored.... iv been ill recently (well still am)... and i got out of bed today (after lazing around watching films for 2 days straight) and my hair was all over the place :lol: ....and i looked like crap..... but it got me thinking of doing a shoot in my used work clothes (im an angel, right!) of a haggard overworked looking me...
    so just for fun here it is....:greenpbl:

    Heres a colour one i thought id chuck in... it has a bit of fringing around the hair because of the way its lit... but i quite like the tired look of the pose in comparison to the other one.

    Feh! Seriously if you're going to post a picture of you after being bedridden for 2 days at least have the decency of actually looking like crap! ;)

    I like both of these self ports. Quite the intense (drug-addled? just kidding!) gaze in the first one. You look like a young Frank Sinatra or some star from the 40s/50s that I can't quite figure at the moment. And I really really like the expression on your face in the second one - you look like a harried/overworked/puzzled young executive. Good work!

    I like this one!
    It is warmer than the b/w. The high-key technic is pretty good, it underlines the dozy expression ;)
    You are a nice model. If you come to germany, I`ll get some photos of you :cool:

    I wish I looked that good after being sick ;) They are both great, I can't pick a favorite. Great concept and nicely done!

    I think #1 is my fav. The intensity in the eyes. Seems to go right through you (at least for me anyways).
    And I like #2 cause you look so confused yet it's so cute.
    Nicley done!!!!
