Well Lili it was worth the wait, I like the subtle shapes, tones and the crop enhances it - the selected focus works for me as well as does the B&W conversion.
I cannot see anyone being in any way concerned about this image so keep them coming please as they are a very pleasant change from landscape to humanscape and subtle shots of body crops are always thought provoking and often inspiring as in this case.
It makes me think about my next image along this vein.
Thanks for posting,
LOL thanks, that was my first effort been using light and shadow far more in the recent shots. I do love that little pendant!I think she might mean the others are a bit more revealing. I think your composition is good here, maybe a little more drama to the lighting. Subject matter makes it intimate but a more dramatic lighting/use of shadows would bring out a sensuality too. I am btw not good at self portraiture. Then again my last attempt was just as intimate [ekg leads for a holter monitor on my chest] but somehow those colored leads and patches made it more raw than anything. And I like your pendant, love angel related things.
Don't sell yourself short mate. I'm sure the images would, inevitably, satisfy a niche market....Maybe this can be the beginning of a thread for selfies. Mine wouldn't look anywhere as sexy and pretty though!
Worry not ... I'll restrain myself! It's bad enough they are constantly using photos of me on those Abercrombie & Fitch ads.it's probably a very small niche indeed ... if Armando can possibly restrain himself, I'm sure the rest of us will be deeply grateful ...
Seriously, I really didn't know Cindy Sherman an hour ago. BUT, I do now thanks to Wikipedia.Oh bite your tongue!
I thought there was something familiar about those advertising shots mate, I just didn't click until I realised they're only using you for the torso crops. But now, well, it's unmistakable! Better than Mark Wahlberg Thanks for clarifying. So why did you go with A+F rather than Calvin Klein?Worry not ... I'll restrain myself! It's bad enough they are constantly using photos of me on those Abercrombie & Fitch ads.
well done, Mark love the lighting, make me think of a Crucifix
