Well, as the title says, I tried to take my own senior portrait. I made a reflector this afternoon, thought about cleaning myself up, but didn't, took my tripod, camera, 70-200mm f/2.8, reflector, and myself outside and decided to take my senior portrait. I have been getting all sorts of cards in the mail from photographers to take my senior portrait or whatever, but their prices are rather obscene ($500 for a session and a few prints? No thanks). I don't know much about posing, and I don't know a lot about portraiture (like, nothing, actually). But, I figured, hey, what the heck? So, here is what I ended up coming up with... I know that there's some halo'ing going on around my head, and that's due to excessive dodging that I did in PS to try and separate my hair from the background a little bit, and I'm gonna try and tackle that issue tomorrow with some cloning and burning and whatnot. But, I'd still like to know how I did. So, all you pros, help a kid out, what should I do differently if any of my friends ask me to do their portraits? Or what should I do differently in post on my own? Or do I have nothing good here and I should just do a reshoot? Thanks for looking! Comments, critiques, and jokes (at my expense, if you must) are welcome and much appreciated. :] Peace.
