Challenge: Mug Shot (Advanced Editing VII)
Collection: Self Portraits
Camera: Canon EOS-350D Rebel XT
Lens: Canon EF 75-300mm f/4.0-5.6 II/III USM
Location: Studio
Date: Mar 22, 2008
Aperture: 1:4.0
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/60 second
Galleries: Humorous, Self Portrait
Date Uploaded: Mar 22, 2008

The height chart is 2 pieces of paper taped to the wall and the jailbird number is just a print on photo paper. I was gonna wear my false teeth, but I couldn't find them. ;-)

PP sounds like a lot, but it was really just a lot of very small adjustments: replace color, clone brush, paintbrush, dodge/burn, LucisArt, color balance, color sat, resize, sharpen, save for Web.

Post-challenge: WOO-HOO!!! I'm stoked... I completed my ribbon color set. Thank you all for the great comments and positive affirmation. I had started to become a little disenchanted with the whole scene, but this has re-animated me and my desire to produce more work.

I'm currently in the process of opening my own "real" studio, so this gives me a huge boost in confidence. I owe so much to this community... Y'all are the best - THANKS!

you set up all the lights and the camera in the afternoon

  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/29/2008 11:20:02 PM

Good processing! Straight forward. Nice job!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/28/2008 10:09:03 PM
Very nicely done! I like the overall sharpness and effect. Defintely an unflattering mugshot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/28/2008 12:52:00 PM
out of 5'10" total height, the model has 16" head. i guess the markings are not to the scale.
i forgot to mention that i like the processing of this shot a lot. also i am guessing that the title came from the movie "big lebowski" because of the resemblance with the character. high points in my books.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/28/2008 06:35:27 AM
Looks a little overprocessed to me, otherwise it's a great take -7

I'm sure we can find SOMETHING to blame him for. Lock him up and throw away the key. 8
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/25/2008 10:45:56 AM
Dude, you are scaring me!!! Oh, and by the way, I think you have the height wrong. Do you still love my sense of humor?
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/25/2008 10:20:44 AM
