Self Portrait

    Newer Older

    a random photo of mine ? | popular +fav | z o o m - this photo

    This is my first attempt at a self portrait. I've had this idea for a few days to add some lights under this table, it's our patio deck table and I thought it would be a cool effect to have some lighting coming up from under it.

    Comments & Criticism welcome;

    Strobist Info: I used a 580EX II set on 1/8 shot into a 40" white umbrella that's sitting on the table (camera right) I brought the umbrella as close as I could. I also have 2 150w fluros blubs attached to the wood strips under the table with pincher grasps in those aluminum cones things from home depot. I did some light skin re-touch in photoshop.

      on my screen the lighting is too diffuse. More shadows would make it more interesting. You can adjust the levels ( black and midrange) or go to grayscale. See my email.

      Cool self-portrait. Totally did not think "verizon man"...but then again, I don't watch much television at all.
