So I do alot of Self portraits… I have been my own model for over a year now and have grown alot from it! Some of these images people class as art and others I want to use as my portfolio for portrait sittings..

Positive ! Wonderful. Very sultry.
Superb, great light and tones and love the use of negative space.
I think doing self portraits is a great learning curve Lee. Not only do you get more familiar with your settings in a quiet time but you also learn a lot of what it is you expect from someone else on the other side. I did quite a few also in the early stages mainly because I am a cheap and always available model lol…………plus I tend to get excited by a concept and sometimes want to run with it straight away and cant wait to tee someone up at short notice. Yay for you, this is lovely:)
its like your looking right trough me Lee.Very Cool !
Thank you Flamejob, David and Cliff!!! Much appreciated!
Kim ~ You got it girl! EVERYTHING you said is right on! Sometimes you just get so excited by ideas!! Haha fun fun!
Excellent focus on the eyes! Quite striking they are too! Well done Lee!!
Your eyes and eyebrows are to-die-for! It’s like you’re not trying to look seductive but you can’t help it because you were born with the eyes for it! So perfect it’s like someone has painted this. I’ll happily model for you if you make me look this good! :)
Hehe Lee, thats awesome. In saying all that, if you ever get to Adelaide, you can come model for me anytime. I prefer to shoot others but some of the things I want people to do is crazy and not the most comfortable, so I jump on in. Why oh why would YOU need models when you look like that, you keep doing them self portraits, I adore them. You project a lot of emotion with them and sometimes another person cant capture that as well. Put on your favourite music and get that timer going Lee:):)
Also one more thing on the self portraits…sometimes I also do them because, as you can see from my gallery, I tend to cut off a lot of valued body parts ie: heads etc and I dont want to offend my models by saying, hey, I only want to shoot your bottom half LOL:)
Thanks Paul!! :-)
Hey Leia You can come model for me ANY time!! :-D And thank you for your kind words!
Kim Hahaha SO true about the faceless images! I don’t think they’d take too kindly to that! lolIt is fun putting some tunes on and setting the timer but, as you’d know, can be frustrating and restricting! However when you get good results.. it’s so worth it! =)And thank you for the massive compliment..
