Challenge: Band Names (Basic Editing)
Camera: Canon PowerShot SX100 IS
Location: Brazil - Belo Horizonte, MG
Date: Aug 11, 2009
Aperture: f/2.8
ISO: 200
Shutter: 1/5s
Galleries: Self Portrait
Date Uploaded: Aug 11, 2009

Taken with a normal light and a lamp directed to me, this is a self portrait. I had a lot of problems to hold the radio, and i'm not totally satisfied with the result, but i'm trying with this one, so let's see.
I have to say thank you to my girlfriend, who pushed the buttom for me, and to the guy, owner of a radio workshop, who lended me this nice radio!
Once again, i had problems with light because my camera can't handle with that easily, but i think it's not OOF, despite of the speed shutter.
PP was levels, conversion to B&W, added some noise, croped, resize and save for web!

Woa! Thank you all for the votes! I'm really happy with this unexpected and great score! A new amazing PB for me!

Thanks for the shoutout in the photog notes there!
Great effort and you put noise to a great use here too. The close crop on the top really works well too, and helps to accentuate the sparseness of the scene- the chair and the "radiohead."
Good band too.

This is more like it - if a tad plagiariszed. Crop is a little tight at the top but I like the grain.

I love this concept and really dig this image. I'd love to see a version with the radio being suspended in some fashion.

I really like how you merged man and machine. Nice processing--it works well given the somewhat antiquated boom box & record. Everything is tied together nicely.
