thanks for looking
1 or 2?
its actually #3 and it was a accident truth be told, was jw if it could be something still, maybe have more focus on the lips and eyes that way?
haha point taken, does it look good 1 and 2?
If you want more focus on a certain area of the subject then make them more interesting or use lines or light to guide the eye to them. Don't eliminate other important parts of the subject.
I like 1 better than 2 .. but then again I don't like Sepia that much
it was a joke reece man, the shot was not supposed to have been taken like that like I said it was a accident
haha thanks erose compared to everyone else?
like the other self portraits you have seen how does it compare to them?
I dont know what exactly was done, if anything was done at all..but it looks like you were a little heavy-handed in post. Especially in the first one. Also, a shirt of some sort would be appreciated from me, but that's just my preference, I suppose. Maybe clone out the shadow in the background and crop it vertical? It just looks too square to me..again, maybe its just my preference..
Were these handheld? If so, it seems like a long shot to me to expect 1/50s 50mm f/1.4 ISO640 to look all that nice when the hands are extended on arms, facing backward. Get the thing on a tripod, better lighting so you can drop the ISO, open the aperture to at least f/2.8. Then youre cookin' with gas!
haha ok erose and it was on a tripod mark
If you have an external flash, here is where they come in handy.
