I had a couple of nice shots, one each for Pure and Transitions, when I thought of redoing a triptych I did for the 30-day self-portrait project last September:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/60862/120/392257.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/60000-64999/60862/120/392257.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

But of course, this had to be a single shot. I'd bought a piece of black cloth for a backdrop since then, which gave me the dark background.

I also now have three "flashes," because I own three cameras that have timers. Setting them to various delays allowed me to change positions between flashes.

The color comes from clear plastic notebook section separators: red on the left and yellow on the right.

And yes, I really did shave half my face. :) In fact, I went to bed that way and had to remember to shave the other half before I went to work!

Post-challenge: Well, it's clear people didn't like the different skin tones. Live and learn ...

I still think it was a darn clever idea and pretty well executed. :-)

Wow, Jeffrey! I am so impressed with your execution skills. This is really amazing!

Ahhhh - you should have gone to work that way!!!!
You missed out on some of the oddest looks you will ever get.
(trust me - I know - I get them all the time and I'm clean shaven too)

Wow, you're becoming quite the magician. Soon you'll be giving ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/17203.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/user_id/17203.gif', '/') + 1) . ' Scalvert a run for his money. I like the bearded guy best -- it highlights his marvelous eyes.

It is impossible for me to vote objectively on this photo, so I will skip it. Take that as you will... ;P

Nice play on composition. For my tastes with this type of scene I would prefer for evenness in colour tones, but as here still different tones for each. Good shot.

DUDE!! rofl

This is quirky but I kinda like it. I wish the tones of the faces on the left and right were the same. The one on the left is red, the one on the right more golden. Ok, I guess it works since you're going from one to the other. Talking out loud here. ;`D

7 for making me laugh. Also a 7 because if you really did do that you deserve it!

I like this image but 1) I would have preferred the bearded face to be on the side of the beard and 2) the skin tones are vastly different

Hmmmm, you were right I did recognize this one. My vote ... keep the beard!

Don't tell me you shaved just for this challenge???!!!!?? Great work with the flashes/multiple exposures, I have no idea how to do that.

is this a single image. i wonder because the lighting seems different for each view. anyway it does show transition but just not real appealing. looks like you had fun with it though.

Cool creative, well shown transition. Was it worth it? :-)
