Challenge: Self Portrait VI (Advanced Editing V*)
Camera: Canon EOS-300D Rebel
Lens: Tamron SP AF 28-75mm f/2.8 XR Di for Canon
Location: home
Date: Dec 2, 2007
Galleries: Portraiture, Black and White
Date Uploaded: Dec 2, 2007

Taken in our home "studio" with hot work lights (Like you'd get at home depot or something). I only used one light lit from the right (obviously). Our collapsible reflector is also a diffuser, so I propped that in front of the light. Piece of black backdrop fabric nailed to the wall and Voila! The end result is close to what I envisioned, but not exactly. I'm happy enough though. I worry that this will not do so well because it's not "creative"....we shall see.

I think it wouold have better if you could see the rest of your head. You might have cropped it too much on the top but it's still a good photo

nicely done up and the processing is great too. on a closer look tho the lightimg could have been softer for better impact. Excellent nonetheless

Nice face, good try with the light, but the shadow of the nose is too strong. Lovely eyes. Very photogenic.

overprocessed. Please be more subtle when softening skin and sharpening eyes. This looks unnatural.

Nicely done portrait. Like the shadows and the B& W treatment.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
12/05/2007 05:39:22 PM
Great lighting - i love the use of the dark top to make us focus on your face. I just think that maybe a bit more detail in your face and a bit less processing on the eyes would have made this better for me - it's a very natural shot except for a bit of over processing - still it gets a 7

This proves simplicity can often be the best. I am sure some will criticize the lighting but it adds. This picture is perfect in black and white...a 10.
