Self Portraits
Posted By: Tyler, 01-16-2008, 02:14 PM

I've had half days for the past 3 days and last Friday for final exams. 1 per day. I had so much extra time I didn't know what to do with and I needed to learn to use my flash a little bit better so I took these. I had some better poses but apparently I bumped the focus ring after I pre-focused the 1st time and they are all OOF. Great. My skin looks really oily in these. oh well.

Lighting consist of a Pentax AF360 on 1/16 power @70mm fired about 4 feet away and 5 feet up sitting on top of a lampshade on my dresser . Simple setup I can repeat time and time again for *good* results.



I love to make akward and weird faces.


Let me know what you think.


If you feel like it, let me know what you think of this blog idea as well. It started out as a design for a clients site I was working on, but we ditched it and I changed it into this

Nice job on the self portraits! Man, it's really hard! I tried for the first time this weekend. I'm taking a course and it was our homework.

There is a lady who posts on DPReview and has a blog at A Scenic World who is REALLY good at self-portraits. She's a part of the 365 group (self-portrait a day for a year) on flickr, if you need more inspiration.
