Comments, critiques, jokes are all welcome and appreciated.
Wonderfully conceived, lit, posed and executed.
Brilliant self portraits, perhaps the best I have seen.
Your kind words are very, very much appreciated.
Great job, man! I love the lighting and they are super sharp!! I wish you could relax your face a bit though - especially in the first shot. These are my fave self portraits I've ever seen from you I think.
I'm happy to see that you're using softer light
the first one is disconcerting, the 2nd is dynamite, great composition and light.
Also, shave your jawline, the patchy hair looks really bad.
Yeah, I was just experimenting with softer light and didn't really think about my patchy teenage facial hair, haha.
And yeah, I'm really digging the whole soft light thing! It's super awesome. I might try some more today.
Thanks for the comments and critiques, Switch, they are much appreciated, man.
What are you using for lighting?
Basement window for these.
I totally would have thought you used strobes on this because of how the contrast is. Nice!
It's a really narrow window in the basement of my house, and the light comes in at some really harsh angles during different times of the day. I usually only think of using the light in the late afternoon when the sun just beats down through it, literally creating a fairly narrow beam. If I could learn how to control my strobes like the window controls light, then I'd be a happy camper!
Very, very nice!! Awesome sharpness, lighting, contrast. Good B&W conversation. The only critique I have is your sleeve on the bottom in the second photo is just a bit distracting.
Thanks for the comments, dab_20! Very much appreciated.
And for Switch, an edit:
