WOW! Very nice
Thanks guys, I'm pretty stoked to learn how to use this gear....UPS has been to my house several times this week =)
this was shot on a white backdrop
I would've liked a bit more light on your eye, especially since you are using split lighting. Other than that I like it =]
Not too shabby. I'd like to see just a little hint of a cheek or eyeball on the dark side...anything....just a whisker's worth of detail on the dark side could really make this shot come alive for me.
I'm always excited for people who have the UPS truck arriving--that means excitement,new gear, new possibilities, and a lower bank balance. All good things for the US economy and for photo buffs!
really good shot. love the detail.
curious how you set up - and how you guys are getting self portraits. I'm assuming a timer or remote release, but what about focus - how did you get such crisp focus? Was there someone else behind the camera? Or is there a way to do this I'm not aware of? Thanks!
I set the lens to manual focus, set the camera on a 10 sec timer. I do have a remote release but dont really use it often. i took a few test shots getting the focus right, but it wasnt really that hard.
Here is another edit with more detail on my left side.
Ahhh....detail! It gives the eye a bit more to look at, and adds an aura of mystery! I prefer this edit, with the small amount of detail added on the dark side.
+1 the key to split lighting is having just enough detail to tease the viewer!
love the edit. :thumbup:
Thanks guys...really appreciate your input :thumbup:
