    tried some self portraits recently (i tend to be the only willing subject around :wink: )

    shot this at an event, had to quick set the camera down on a table with a timer...

    yes, i confess...some girl-friends of mine straightened my hair...don't judge :D

    had some fun trying to copy the 'scene' look (i'm sure many of you have seen what i'm talking about), and wanted to play around with lighting a tad:

    slightly different:

    try not to take these too seriously, they were all spur of the moment snaps...i had fun with them though :)

    thanks for looking!

    I'm pretty sure that I'm my #1 fan...of my self-ports :lol:

    I take a lot of shots of myself for practice. So...I think these are great :)
    *not too fond of the straight hair though* The curls just give you more character.

    I think these are great. The first is for me the hands down winner.

    haha.. by "Scene" were you referring to the arm in the shot? typically that makes me want to die, but this was fun.
