This is a discussion on New self portrait within the People Photography forums, part of the PHOTO GALLERIES category; new self portrait, thoughts?...
wow you really go all out with your pp-ing. looks pretty cool!
i just looked through your site you have a great collection of work there! very 'high def' and that's okay, it's all part of one big art form!
Oh wow, thats awesome! So glad you liked it. Up until now photo has just sort of been a hobby for me. I've recently decided to try my hand at a full time photo career and to hopefully achieve some 'photo fame'. I've been shooting for years, so it's sort of a natural gravitation I guess.
Again, thanks so much for the kind words Heather.
Hubby says you need to stop posting pictures of yourself Brad, he thinks you are just too easy on my eyes and is getting worried
Seriously though, would love some insight into your PP. I should say I have been inspired about some of the PP I have seen on here lately I have tried a few new things... maybe I'll post!
Ordinarily I would say that its a bit centered but because one of your shoulders is dipped, it looks awesome as usual
Canon 40D & Tamron 18 - 270mm lens & Canon 580x II Speedlight and a lot of enthusiasm
When responding to signatures, I'll give my uneducated, self taught opinion and respect that your hard work and fun went into producing the images you share. Please feel free to take everything I say with a grain of salt

looks amazing!!! your retouching skills are a sensation. my only critique is i personally think the lighting on your forhead and cheeks is a bit harsh.. too much contrast shaping your face. i like it.. i just think toning it down a hair. just a hair... would make it better. but thats my own opinion. take it or just laugh and ignore me either way. your work is fantastic
