I don't know if people will get this. All the nagative space is supposed to represent where my body should be. I decided to go with the demented look. I usually don't have to wear a suit on Saturdays, but at least I didn't have to shave. Fun shoot. Turned out exactly the way I wanted; that's always fun.

I'm a banker by the way. That's where that comes from.

Shot with a Canon 28-135mm IS. Camera on tripod with timer. Black suit against black backdrop.

On my monitor, there's head, shirt, tie, and nothing else. Not sure if that's how you intended it, but for some reason it works!

Great use of negative space! I really like the incongruity of the formal suit with the rather skewed pose and expression. Crazy is good!

Great job. Simply fabulous.

It will make you go blind. How many identical comments have you got like that?
I really like the way that your suit is just part of the blackness - one of the few SPs that's using lots of darkness to hide some of the subject without it being an exercise in modesty/ shyness/ fear.
Great expression too.

LOL, I just love the expression on your face... it really makes the picture for me. I also like how you cropped this pic too, like there should be a body there. Good job.

Hey! Jacko! Comment va? ;-) You don't look too too crazzzzzzzzy on this shot though. Nice frame, the white line catches the chemise. And the tie brings out your blue eyes. LOL The negative space works well here as does the cropping... it makes you look taller. :-) 8

I love the way the blue in the tie and the blue in your eyes compliment each other. I think the border is also a nice touch. Very nicely done.

  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/18/2003 12:53:09 AM
Hehehehe... Jacko... you do look pretty crazy here. This is GREAT! Wonderful use of negative space, excellent lighting... great juob of blending into the background.. this is so cool. I also love the cropping of it, and how skinny and tall it is, gives us an idea of how you think of yourself too ;-) A perfect 10 in my eyes. Love, RiderGal... when we meet you can touch my thingy ;-)
