In the right light

    Newer Older

    This is a portrait that I took with the flash right in my face to really light up my eyes. They actually are that color in the light. I did a little selective dodging and burning to help the exposure on the left eye and to soften the line near my nose, which was thrown into a harsh shadow. As a side note, you can clearly see the mole that I have on my retina (confirmed by my eye doctor). It's reflected as the speck on my left iris. Fun fact for ya! :P

      Well, I don't photograph myself like that very often, and I live in Florida, so I probably get more light damage from just walking outside. ;) Thanks for the concern though!

      Fantastic snap - not just the idea, composition and lighting but a wonderful job with post-processing!! I am trying to do more in post -- but it all takes so very long -- with a job that gets in the way of fun stuff!! Great picture and congrats on law school (unless that is old news by now).
