The lighting and composition is lovely. I'm no expert (in fact technically I'm sure I couldn't achieve this), but I just feel if it had been cropped closer so you see the face and shoulders better and removed the edge effect around the photo it would have looked better. The light projection from the window also looks a bit cheesy and spoils the otherwise perfect atmosphere.

The materials are fanstastic though, and a simple but beautiful pose.

I was immediately drawn to this, because of the interesting set. I'd like to know a bit more though! Where did you take it? Was it part of an ongoing project or a teaching studio shoot? Still, however you arrived at it - I like it! *click*

P.S. Welcome to Ephotozine!

lovely the shadow window, but am a little distracted by the leaning lamp

Like the composition, self portraits can be very difficult, I get very self conscious!
