    More Self portrait fun...

    Adina---your turn

    Rick and Speed--- you'll post anyway---no challenge there!

    :idea: oooh I have an idea---let's start a daily self portrait thread---like the daily cartoon

    notes: used a mirror for some fill light. used PS to touch up old woman dark circles and sun freckles on my face and a few imperfections...brightened the eyes with dodging --my nose loks a little snausagy to me but...what can you do---probabaly shoot at 50 instead of 35mm lol

    Trust me Rick, us girls have to see charcter every day in the mirror. When I've got a photo, I want to see what I think I look like, not what I actually do look like.

    I'll play!

    You may remember the first half of this from what I did in Maine.
    When I shot this though, I intended it to be like this. It's just that the first half is so much stronger than the two!

    I start one then realize "hey I haven't tried anything fun in a while" and surely if it hadn't been me it would have been Rick or Speed
