Shot with: 40D, 50mm 1.4 EF Shot specs from camera: Mode: Aperature Priority Shutter: 1/100 sec. Aperature: 1.8F ISO: Locked at 400 Metering: Pattern with center weight No exposure compensation 10 second self timer Post Processing: Lots of play with the levels as the original is dark. Surface blur over most of my skin on a new level and then dropped that level's fill to 50% to find a happy medium. No cropping, this is the full image. Process: Hardest part of this was finding the correct focus, and I'm not 100% sure I nailed it. I took an older tripod, placed it where I guessed my head would be, focused then switched my lens to manual focus, replaced the tripod with myself and pressed the button. Questions for you: How does this look technically? What settings would you have switched to produce a better image? What would you do differently with post processing? Any ideas on how to set the focus other than my method? Do you like it from an asthetic point? Black and white? Should I Not have looked into the lens? Is the arms crossed too dramatic? Should I have ironed my shirt? Teasing... Let me know if I should post the original from the card, unaltered. PS: that would be my bathroom I'm standing in.
