Jul 9: Friday

Just messing about with the lights, trying out some different ideas. This one was going in the bin, as I clearly had no idea where the lens was pointing. But I liked the negative shapes made by my right arm, so here it is. No fish or lederhosen were used in the making this photograph.

You're almost ready for one of those Japanese pony tail things.

Great with the strong contrast and deep shadow.

I like it.. of course, you look like you're thinkng SERIOUSLY about a haircut. The composition is great..
Carmen09-Jul-2004 22:48
Glad you didn't chuck this one. I like it for the reasons you saved it, and also the terrific expression on your face -- sort of a pensive 'wonder where the lens is pointing?' look. ;^)

ok all joking aside, this is a really cool shot, I also like the space and shapes. Great lighting.
Guest 09-Jul-2004 18:03
Nice one DM!! You should try one in the car!?

I like the negative shapes too, BTW!
Linda Mingay09-Jul-2004 17:36
