Amazingly enough, (me being extremely non-photogenic) I actually came out pretty decent in this photo in my opinion.... What do you guys think?

I like it! The only thing that bugs me is the triangular shadow to the left of your nose.

I believe thats what they consider Rembrant Lighting.

Very nice job!!

I think Rembrant lighting is defined by the shadow of the nose cast downward forming an upside down triangle of light on the dark side.

I waited till it was dark in my room, and then I used controlled light to get this effect.. I like how it made my face have such a variation of brightness across it without it being too strong
