    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.

    Re: More Self portrait fun...

    I haven't posted much lately but here's the most recent self-portrait, playing in the street.

    It's neat to see some old faces and some new ones.

    Well, I'd tried the ol' proverbial "Self-Portrait-in-the-Mirror", but it just didn't come out right...

    Re: More Self portrait fun...

    All right, I'll play along. Although this isn't really a true self portrait. My wife shot it last week. She suggested I pose on this dangerously slippery slope of wet bedrock, and so I obliged her. Not sure if she was looking to get the insurance money or what, but anyway this is my victory stance over the elements as I came away unscathed.

    These were taken on my way to Interbike. I think I've told you about the ride outside Yosemite. It's really beautiful and a pretty unique mountain bike ride for California.

    Not cheap one like your 50mm either. I have my eye on a 400mm prime and 1.4xTC !

    400mm prime? If I were your wife, I would probably disown you for just buying that. But that's assuming its the 2.8.

    Re: More Self portrait fun...

    Here is my self portrait- long overdue.

    I wanted a shot like this for one of my classes. Lighting was a radioshack strobe light, and lots of attempts to get the photo the way I wanted it.

    Very nice effect. Those unsuccessful attempts are some of the most fun you have in photography. I do love the process.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Re: More Self portrait fun...

    Here's my latest attempt, camera on a tripod that belted onto the back seat, on a timer+10 shots, next time I think I'll do it while driving in a better setting and without that "seat cover."

    Yes that's other men. I only have eyes for one man. (And for the 70-200mm F2.8 :thumbsup:
    I will own that one day and probably a 300mm)

    Well, I can dream cant I?

    Re: More Self portrait fun...

    From recent SF Gathering
    View from Twin Peaks, I figured I had to make it my own, what better way than by putting myself in the shot?


    And with lots of contrast and brightness changes:


    And another, up with the brightness down with the contrast.
