• The size of that. In french, we say "revers". - Anne Onymat

A self portrait.....well you can't see my face so I guess you could say it isn't a portrait?

I need some subjects to shoot, I prefer being behind the camera. You know that your bored when your biggest debate is between a skinny tie and a fat tie.......

This was my first time using my lensbaby composer pro. I wanted to try something different. This is shot just before noon in front of a window. The natural light provided some nice fill while I had a nikon sb28 camera left at full power. I'm not sure I like the crop? It does draw into the subject better. What do you think? I also went for more of a vintage process on this one. I like the extra softness in tones that it brings.

    With that suit, a fat tie would have been a better choice...

    Yeah I tried a few with the thick tie but I didn't like how they came out.... Thanks for the view, I'll reshoot again and stick with a fat tie :)

    In fact, te size of the tie must be as large as the part I'm gonna put in note. I'om doing that because I don't know the word in english !

    It's a pleasure to talk about suit !

    the crop in this photo works really well, it demands attention! also, i think the skinny tie is a much better choice than a fat tie. great shot. nice critical focus and love the tones.

    Great shot! I like the composition and vintage look, nice control of the Lensbaby blur as well.
