A little space

Self Portrait. Playing with shadows. It is my first time, so I'll try to do better next time. It was pretty hard to get the shadows where I wanted them to be.


Thanks to Congaragata for helping me to decide on the crop. The tigher one he liked is below. And this is the one I like..some space would do me a little good once in a while I guess ;)

    yeh ... keep experimenting with creating shadows ... It adds depth and texture to an image and in my opinion is what lighting is all about ... light and shadows. This is great the way the one side of your face is lit and the light wraps around your face just revealing your other eye [its all about the eye's]
