Challenge: Self-Portrait Revisited (Classic Editing)
Collection: People
Camera: Canon PowerShot G2
Location: Studio
Date: Jun 14, 2003
Galleries: Humorous, Portraiture
Date Uploaded: Jun 14, 2003

I've done quite a few self portraits in my time at DPC and I wanted to disguise myself in a comical kind of way. I used a slight neatimage to make the skin look more fake/cartoony (only 10% I think) and the expression is kinda weird :S A perfect caricature of me then!

I have absolutly no idea how will this will do. I'm being different to the norm, which normally means a bad score.

I really like the lighting on this. I think that the angle and framing/cropping are good as well. Really adds some personality. focus on your eye is great, and detail is wonderful. definately unique. Great shot! ~Heather~

Weird. But good.
06/24/2003 02:20:00 PM
funny facial expression!
I really like the detail around the right eye but I'm not very convinced about the left eye.

Very interesting effect... I hope you'll write up how you achieved it!

Well, I thought I found my winner - but now I chnage my mind. Probably the most sharpest image in the entire contest (I can't belive how many people are oof).

Without a doubt the most original (so many people with the balck & white - hard shadow composition - myself included)
The eye and bridge of nose is technicaly perfect.

10 - 10 - 10

Hope you get the ranking you deserve.

Interesting way to capture yourself!
06/21/2003 10:42:20 PM
Scary! Very effective use of harsh shadows.

I think you have done a really amazing job at capturing the look and feel of a caricature. The dark background and lighting have certainly served to add to the drama of your shot as well as your expression. Creative self portrait!! nice job!!

Creative use of light and expression! Would crop in from the right, since that area doesn't appear to add anything.

Good stuff. I'd like it more if the area by your right eye was completely dark, same with the hair behind your left hair.

Powerful impact and incredible use of light to define shape. I love how you are tricking the eye into seeing a slightly different reality.
Great, slightly abstract feel.
Good composition.

Very original, to me.

Very comical. Expression is great, lighting is great. Almost looks fake to me. In my top 3 for the week.

Hey,
Whoa. Very Caricature like. Very surreal. I think you hit on what you where looking for here. Nice crop. Technically well done, but this one doesn't hold any personally appeal with me.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
06/18/2003 07:34:18 PM
Excellent lighting gives this a very surreal vibe. Quite disturbingly funny!

Hey this reminds me of a movie, hmm,... a killer with a mask!

Very good lighting and expression

Gives me the impression your face is made out of plastic :-) Excellent lighting, the expression is priceless and your idea, very original. Cool how you made the mouth area look like a black hole. And of course I know who this is :-) - 9.

you trippy freak :).. this rocks.

Very clever lighting! It's a shame about the light reflecting off the shadowed eye.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Hands down my favorite in the competition (and there were a lot of good ones). The expression....the quality of the skin.... you look like you're wearing a mask. The lighting (or lack there of) adds to the emotive quality... reminds me of a mime show. Well done, and top marks overall. I hope to see this one win!

Hey, this is very cool, and well-done too! I love the lighting and the warm tones. 10
