    D80 f/5 1/200th iso400. I fail every time I try to shoot a serious one so I just went for the idiot look and think I pulled it off a lot more succesfully. I had a lot of fun with this.

    I have never really shot much portraiture so any constructive criticism/tips/comments would be great. Thanks!

    aha! this is so random, which is cool. You'd usually expect something like this in a well lit room, 'tis nice to see something original and fresh!

    I used two for this particular shot. Vivitar 285's. One as a rim and one to the rear left of the camera. Thanks.

    ^ that part you did well on. :lol: I really like the lighting (possibly a bit harsh on the rim on the right or not enough of the left...I dunno, now I'm confused)

    Nice photo all the same.

    i just like it, i think your pose is hilarious. kinda that sarcastic "hey i'm a jacka_ _" wave thing. looks very appropriate for your age if this makes any sense at all. hehe please don't critique me on my stupid comments

    Hahaha thanks a lot for the comments. Hopefully that doesn't mean I'm super immature but its all good, I was basically going for something like that. Anything else before I let this die out besides the uneven rim?
