Challenge: Self-Portrait III (Advanced Editing IV)
Camera: Canon EOS-300D Rebel
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II
Location: Bedroom
Date: Feb 11, 2005
Aperture: f8
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/60
Galleries: Humorous, Portraiture
Date Uploaded: Feb 11, 2005

Printouts of eyes and mouth, the latter gripped between my teeth. Shot in the bedroom with a large piece of black felt hanging over the curtain rail to serve as a background. Manually focussed, timer with flash bounced from the ceiling. Post processing included turning down brightness of background to hide creases in the felt, cloning out a stray edge of paper, desaturating green channel, turning green shirt to grey, turning up the red a bit, resizing and sharpening. This was actually only going to be a test shot, but when I saw it on the LCD screen after taking it, I nearly choked on my coffee, so I had to enter it.

It's like I'm seeing this for the first time. It's very creative.
But there's proof that I have seen this before because my vote shows up as red. I should have given it a higher score.

This is a wonderful photo...I've been looking through your portfolio and self-portrait 30-day thingy. Your DPC port truly does not show the really unique talent you have with photo/digital art vision. What's up with that? ;)

Not trying to say anything except that I really enjoyed your self portraits!!!

Chow,
Katy

Very well done and very humourous. The lighting and exposure are dead on. Really love it.

LOL- nice sense of humor. Could have been even stronger if the prints didn't appear washed out.

Made me laugh. I love it

I love this portrait - it obviously shows your sense of humour. But the grey t-shirt and plain background say something about an uncomplicated and easy going nature that I'm sure complement your humour.

Returning for comment: I like how this very simple but effective device works. Knowing you a bit from the site, I think it's fitting, and a portrait should show something of the portraitee's personality. Well done. Bumping up.

i don't know anything about portraiture, so i'm using your image as a guinnea pig as to what i think i would or wouldn't do in this situation, as well as what i notice and get out of your image.

this looks like fun, and it looks like something that would be cool to be able to do at the drop of a hat. i do think it would work better if you had matched the tones in the printed face to the actual face. nice work with the lighting.

LOL!

Kudos to you for being silly enough to try such a gimmick. In this case I feel it works. You may not show much of your real face, and I get no idea what you might look like, but I sure get a good idea of your personality :)

ok the expression on your "Face?" is had to look at without laughing. The lighting was well done. The image is nice and crisp. While not a very challenging shot. Still one of the better shots in the challenge IMO. Keep up the great work. And thanks for the laugh

Fun shot: I would imagine you've achieved pretty much exactly what you were after - apart perhaps, from the comparative saturation in the prints, and those slight jaggies around the hand and top of head. I like the mad quality of it a lot.
