Haha, okay, had this pic for a while, I generally hate pictures of myself (I hide BEHIND the camera!) I took this with a simple point-n-shoot (HP Photosmart 735) Turned off all the lights and let the flash have at me! It is the only picture of me ever that I do not hate. As for critque, how does the framing work? My hand is cut off, but I am not sure if it is a problem. Contrast? It appears really strong, but at the same time I does convey the feeling I was trying to exhibit, strength and disgust. Just a side note, the one thing I hate about the pic is the fact that the cigarette is long, clearly it is staged and I lit it right before starting! Dammit! The few who have seen this simply laugh and say "Emo!" Yet I was trying for so much more than that. I was trying to show the world Me!!
