Some people call their shots compositions, but with as many mistakes I make, I felt calling it a "decomposition" was more deserving The graininess is intentional. I shot this as in-camera black and white, and converted it to sepia in Photoshop (I have learned since then to shoot in color and desaturate later). I also took this before I knew the whole "keep body parts in frame," tip, so I cut off my elbows. Is this a big deal, or does it work in this photo? So, whaddya think? BTW I'm 24, just so there's no confusion as to whether or not I'm old enough to be posting self-portraits. I may look 16, but I promise I'm not.
