    Wife's away on business, and I'm very bored. Decided to try to do some self-portraits. Here are some of the only ones that were useable. I was trying to do some figure-study type stuff (not showing off my shoulders (or rather lack thereof! :lol: ))

    This one's kind of weak overall, I think, but I do like the shadows in it.

    the first one looks good to me! I like the b&w here too.

    Yeah, I used a tripod and a (very short) shutter release. I need to get the infrared remote release for my camera, because the 10" release I have now just doesn't cut it for self-portrait stuff! hehehe

    The tat is just a stylized sun. I'm addicted to the ocean and reefs (and tropical, like the sun). I have one on my back between my shoulderblades that's the tibetian symbols for 'ocean'. Maybe when I develop my back muscles a bit more I'll put one up of that. ;) :lol:

    The first is my fav... I think it's because we get to see your eyes. For me, that makes it more intimate.
