here's one my daughter took of herself. She was just doing some simple poses. Using levels on this one, I dropped out all the highlights until nothing of the background was visible. I thought it looked kinda cool.

My one and only attempt (So Far) :)

Rather sad that this photo did not seem to carry favour with a good portion of DPC Neil... I for one gave this a 9, and upon closer scrutiny I should have given it a 10. Kudos on a job well done.

Or three flashes with difusion screens... blargh... go with the natural light. :) Skin tones do look good to me, but I'd agree, a little over-exposed -- or maybe just the light is too harsh -- or both. but I'm *no* expert. Certainly not!

First self-portrait I've done in years; and I owe it all to the inspiration from eyeronic the great. and notonline.

I take a lot of self-potraits at work for some reason (that reason in my girlfriend...that, and I get bored).

Ok...here's one not at work...

Its really weird how I look like a different person in all of these? Wigs, eyelashes, makeup, etc. I get bored and sometimes do drag queen makeup!

I couldn't resist ... I tried to let my hair grow longer a while back but gave up and cut it tight. This shot was taken part way through :)
