    Hi everyone,

    My last post provided a little controversy as far as whether it was art or just 'hey look, what am I smoking?'. So now that I've got a new camera I decided I'd do some self-portraits that will hopefully be accepted a little better than last time ;)

    All photos taken on a Fuji FinePix S5700, both taken on Manual mode.

    Any pointers or comments?

    The first one feels a little out of focus, I'd try sharpening it up a little bit. Second one has really good lighting and shadows. As for the images from a non-technical standpoint I'm not a big fan. I just feel like they are a too posed/artifical, just my opinion but keep posting.

    Thanks for the feedback, I agree it looks a little soft; I'll see what I can do.
    I took hundreds of photos moving a desk lamp around getting some interesting angles, just experimenting really, I quite liked the way this one came out.

    The reason the poses feel that way is because they are :p my main aim was to get used to the camera and have some fun in the process. Hence they aren't really that imaginitive.
