This is the lighter version of one i uploaded a wee while ago hope its better
please leave comments and advice thanks
I looked at this image because I couldnt quite make it out in the thumbnail and then saw that it was a kinda lighter re-post so visited your pf.
I think you have made a good attempt at varying your self portraits but they are all a little dark and perhaps serious. The best photo I think is your profile photo for a couple of reasons.
Firstly, it is correctly exposed and you have good light from one side (from the window of a train or bus). Secondly, the pose is more candid ie natural and sort of unposed if you know what I mean.
I would use the profile pic as a reminder to yourself of what looks right when trying to take the more posed for shots ie good light, be relaxed in your shots, almost always smile and make sure the eyes are pin sharp as they are always the point of focus in portraits.
Hope this helps
good image , i like how you are lighter and darker in the backround. makes you stand out
Hi Rachael, I agree with the points raised by Ian, however I have prevously mentioned the lack of light problem and also the pose in which you seem to like the knees in front of you. not so sure this is a very flattering position for a self portrait, hope this helps a little,
