Another self portrait about which I'm not too sure - I did it earlier today for the weekly B&W Challenge but all I can see are the faults - personal faults that I see when I look in the mirror each day but have the sense to ignore. Photos are another matter and that's what makes me dump a lot of my attempts.

Still, I wanted to have a bash at Hollywood glamour type lighting which kinda worked but not quite. I'm sure I'll try again another day. Nice to mooch about in the silk robe though - that usually lives in the wardrobe Smile

I really really really need that new Hurrell book Smile

What 'faults' Alison?
Looks very effective as a mono image.
Good luck in competition.

I could give you a list Kate but for now - long face, blobby nose and tiny little mouth - and that's just for starters Smile

My Dear Lady....be kind to yourself. You have put forth a fine piece of work. For many of us our worst enemy is ourselves. Stand back and allow other eyes to see the beauty you have created

Super image and great style, that book looks quite super doesn't it. There must be a lightoom preset for hollywood style.

A late thank you again everyone - been a bit of a manic evening Smile

Thanks for the mods too - all food for thought.......

I don't use Lightroom Stuart so any presets would be of no use to me. And if the lighting isn't right in the first place then there's no hope Smile I'll keep experimenting though I'm not sure I'll be uploading this evenings attempt Smile

Great shot Alison !!!!!.....certainly has a touch of '30's or '40's glamour to it, which works well............

I've had a play with a mod. to try & add to the Hollywood look.....see what you think ??

Bit late replying.....just totally missed it !!!
