In the Flesh

By finch_jr
I took this at least a couple of years ago. It's a self-portrait, though I think the pose was a touch over-acted... though I wasn't really going for any particular look. It reminds me a bit of a zombie, but my PS skills aren't good enough to really follow through with it. I stuck a few filters on there to bring out the cracked lips and tried to make me look malnourished or ravenous or something... anyway, critique is most certainly welcomed on this!

Cheers.

It's a fine portrait, well-lit, and I like the way you've filled the frame.
As for making this more zombie-like, tho' I can't imagine why you'd want to, I'm afraid I've no real suggestions - perhaps convert to mono, and ramp up the contrast/shadows ?

Yes, I agree with Barry. It is a fine portrait and it probably will work very well in black and white. Andy

Maybe needs a tad of reflected light to the left hand side of your face to just give that little hint of detail in the shadow. Otherwise I think it is a cracking self portrait.
