    Rachel,

    Great job with that photo of your dad. He's one of our favorite people around here, and it's nice to see that some of his talents have rubbed off on you.

    I hope you'll post your photos often.

    I just hope y'all know that one of the main reasons I became a photographer was so I could stay on the safe side of the lens.......... and this is why (no screaming and running for the hills please)

    Anne - thank you for the very kind comments for Rachel - I will make sure she reads it and posts some more of her piccies.
    Also - don't be so hard on yourself - you look as friendly as you write. I hate seeing my own pictures - particularly the ones I tried of myself as the perspective was distorted (too close for portrait). Gotta get used to the fat that I don't look as young as I once did I guess!!
    Bit busy over the next few days - on a course - but I will try to keep dippig in.

    Everyone else - keep sending in those portraits...

    Here's me...

    Tripod w/fill flash & wireless remote on 2sec delay (just enough time to slip it into my pocket!)



    Shot in my back yard, using a *safe* aperture for DOF.
    Ouch.

    Pretty cool thread.

    I was just messing around the other night working on perfecting the "Multiplicity" Techniques a bit - I really need something wider LOL Click here for example - these are awesome BTW . . . And walked away with a few keepers - using my 85 1.8. . . This is my scary mug! Be warned.

    Hey Parm you look a helluva lot different in those shots than you do in your mirror profile shot. Besides the fact that there's a big plastic electronic device growing out of your eye...
    Ouch.

    Why's that a reject? Maybe I'm too retarded to be a portrait photog...

    ...unless that alignment wasn't intentional. I can see THAT part. lol.
    Ouch.

    Slight high key effect - Still a good photo. I'm guessing a reject for the idea you had in mind?

    I am thinking if I can get a good idea of how to incorporate the multiplicity effect with my GF Dog and cat - our Xmas cards this year are going to be pretty unique!

    You mean, "Besides the fact that there is [an itty bitty] plastic electronic device [w/Bgrip thats hardly noticable in the photo if not for the 85 1.8] growing out of my eye" ??

    I need to pick up the remote for more versatility.

    Dude CDI you gotta try the multiplicity thing. . . its pretty fun - set up your camera and tripod in your yard and with your remote go running all over the place jumping around and do some whacky stuff, layer mask til the sun comes up and then post it up! For research purposes of course I need to see how the remote can perform under said circumstances and if it would be a tool I could count on to perform.
