    The key with doing self-portraits is trial/error. The focus is easy, but the zoom is what's tricky. If you use a UV filter, then the best way to nail the focus is to put your eye in the center of the reflection of the filter, then focus. You SHOULD see a red flicker, which signals that your eye is now in focus. Then just recompose your face, then fire. Repeat as necessary for the desired result.

    My wife thinks so too....she did marry me, after all. ;-)
    Sometimes I wonder if that's why.

    Nope, softbox. My wife and I just purchased a Smith Victor 4-light studio setup that I've been using to practice a lot with. This was shot using our large softbox only.

    Here's the original:
