    You did well on the focus - not easy with self portraits #2 my favourite - white vest not the best choice for flash I'm afraid

    well yeah man, I was around the house with the tanktop so I didn't feel like changing but then I thought about it so I just threw on a polo.

    I like them. They remind me of a magazine ad.

    I like them, but the cut-off head bothers me. Nice work though!

    I will use a watermark when my pictures get good enough for someone to steal.

    I love your expression in #1. Self portraits aren't easy to do. I have a ton of cut-off heads in my attempt at self portraits! I think you did a fine job.
