    As a newbie, I have nothing to say needs improving. I think a more experience photographer could find some here's and there's, but this is a great photo either way!

    The eyebrows... they have so much character. I think this guy has beaten Martin Scorsese for having the bushiest eyebrows ever!

    Thank you for your comments, I'd really like to get feedback on the site rather than the single photo I posted if people have time to look it over.
    Mirror Project

    I asked people to look at the camera using the mirror.

    The idea was to use the pretense of holding up the mirror to get people to let me take a close up portrait. Without the pretense people are less likely to say to a stranger "sure you can take a ridiculously close-up shot of me."

    If you ignore the mirror in the photos and just look at the portraits you see something different.

    I cropped these very tight, the originals are all like the photo below.

    Thanks you for any feedback on the project.

    Jay
