Had the hardest time shooting this by myself. I had to set up the lights and camera, then guess where in the frame I was, contort my arms with the remote shutter on my hand, then aim the thing to the camera until it focused and clicked. It was fun though, I learned a bunch. I hope this doesn't get DNMC because there's not frame, but in my mind the arm works. I know it's a little bit of a strech but I wanted to submit something and I missed the self-portrait challenge. Oh well, I hope you like it

A bit odd but well photographed with good lighting.

that's a very curious pose and makes for an interesting shot. the lighting is very seductive.

I like the contrast between the dark and the skin!

A different take on framing!

I really like the use of light and how the one arm (your left one I think) looks like it comes out of no where

Whoaaaah! I like!

This would be much better and fit the challenge even more if you'd cropped much closer to your arms. The rest of your body is not necessary here.

That's kinda cool. IT'd be killer in BW.
