    Mind you, I'll never go under the knife to acheive non-realness, but a little ps, heck, I'm all for that!

    Re: More Self portrait fun...

    This is nothing like the wonder self portrait Nat started this thread off with, but while editing some of my Texas images I did run across this one that fits the thread.

    Re: More Self portrait fun...

    Ok boys you asked for it. You wanted to see "REAL".
    Here I am with my 17 year old daughter, Gina. No make up, no healing brush, no filters. SOOC from my sony cybershot dsc-P10.
    Not exactly a self portrait, my 14 year old daughter, Becky, took it. But "REAL" nonetheless lol

    Sorry Allison, but you forgot to point out which one is you. Are you the one on the left or right?

    Thanks Nat. I rather liked the image as I was composing it never realizing that I had myself in the single frame of glass. It was kind of a surprised when I got around to doing some work on my Texas pics. Thought it might be just what I wanted to participate in your wonder self-portrait thread. I don't think I've said it before but it's great having you back on PR on a regular basis, you have been missed.

    Nice Brent. You should get bored more often with a camera in hand. Nice concept well executed.

    Re: More Self portrait fun...

    Since this thread seems to have a life of it's own, I thought I would throw in one more. This is an image from last weekends trip to the zoo. A reflection shot from the alligator tank with a little PP.

    Re: More Self portrait fun...

    Well, I have never taken a self portrait before, and it took a bad day in work, a long commute home, and total boredom to make me do it.

    So hide your eyes, wear really dark glasses, and heed all other warnings for viewing a horror: here it goes

    Just got a new soft box cover for the flash head and had to try it out this afternoon before a job tomorrow, so here's something goofy of me and my dog Cooper.

    Necessity

    Since I can't always have people to model for me, and sometimes I find myself in places where I really, really need a photo of someone riding...

    Actually, this was one of the few times I've tried to get photos of myself riding. It's really tough. Each one of these photos has four or five failures to go along with it.
