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.

other sizes: small medium original

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..

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
