Challenge: Self Portrait VI (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Canon EOS-350D Rebel XT
Lens: Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 USM
Location: My kitchen, Noho, Ca
Date: Nov 29, 2007
Galleries: Portraiture, Self Portrait
Date Uploaded: Nov 29, 2007

well... I hope this does ok. Didn't get to go all out with it like I wanted, it's the end of the semester and I have so much homework! Oh well... there will always be more self portraits!

I don't have lights any more so this was done with a regular old lamp. Hence it being so flat and boring. I took a bunch and this was actually not the chosen favorite of most people but I like it best, so there. :P

Your covering your 2nd most beautiful feature I think...were you telling someone to be quiet? lol...well, the clarity here is excellent, even with low lighting.

Monica, if I told you how sexy I think this shot is, I would lose my job and my wife and so I won't tell you...makes one want to kiss the screen right where you are pointing....

lovely image, you should have been in the top 10 at least

I was really drawn to your expression. One of my favorites. The contrast between hair and face nicely balanced.
cheers,

This is a great picture. With your dark eyes and dark hair I bet you would look great with a dark backgound and lighting focused on the center of your face.

Attractive. Technically good, I like the lighting and focusing. Good photo overall :)

A nice contemplative look, although the lighting seems a little defused, I would be tempted to over expose a little here, to emphasize the shhh'ness of the pose

You're gorgeous!

Very intriguing! I think that if you are pointing to your fingers you should have a little but more of a pointing action. Actually it looks like you are saying shhhhhh. Also Maybe you should have been looking at the camera as of you were looking at the person saying kiss my lips. IMO the image could be a little sharper in the center but I really like the blur on the outer edge. Good luck with the challenge and just for the record I gave it a 7

A deeper DoF could have helped

Wow, beautiful.

Normally, I would want the eyes both sharp... but in this case, since the focus is your finger and lips, those should have been the sharpest, especially with such narrow DOF. However, it still is quite effective.

Nice picture, but I might like a slightly deeper depth of field; it seems like the right hand edge of your face drops out of focus a little too soon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 05:48:09 PM
beautifull
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 04:07:27 PM
Ohhh, yes, now I see. Well it's only a cold sore - it'll clear up in a few days. :P LOL - just having fun. While I can't imagine a "bad" iphoto of you, this one is not the best I've seen. I think it's the position of the hand or finger. DoF and lighting are great though. Best of luck.

I love your expression here! The half hint of a smile and yet the light gray bg suggests a playful character. Like it alot. BB

I really like this picture. I do wish that both eyes were in focus though.

I really like your take on the challenge this year, you have such a beauty and are very photographic and I think you portrayed it nicely in this shot. Lighting is spot on and I like how you chose to compose it. Nice work.

Nice SP and has anyone ever told you you look like Sandra Bullock? Great job on the eyes and a pose that is both slightly whimsical and also pleasantly understated

I kinda wish both eyes were in strong focus, but still a good shot overall
