Sometimes you just have to stop and look around.

Trying to work the strobist style. Its's a little blurry, I tend to have difficulty focusing on these self portraits. I stood where I was going to be, then focused on the tripod. I could have cranked the strobes up a bit and stopped down the lens, that might have helped a bit. Processed in Lightroom. Any suggestions?

Jeff, I think you did great work here. The lighting on the face shot is great, and I like the chin out of focus in the shot - excellent! The shot of you gazing at the clouds is also really good. I think, though, that it might have worked better with you backlit instead of lit from the side (because of the obvious bright lightsource behind the clouds :-) ).

Good job, though!
