    If someone tells me how to soften my skin in Photoshop and even out the skin tone, getting rid of pores, freckles and an uneven red cast, while still maintaining sharpness, I might post one.

    I've got a shot of me taken just after I woke up in the morning, and it reveals all. But if I could do some "Hodgy" stuff to it, I'd like it.

    a self portrait

    doesn't have to be straight out of camera... do and be what YOU want to be...just as long as there's no cutting and pasting off of other people's faces (although it has been an appealing thought to me at times....) self portraist are about how you see yourself....

    Hmm, maybe the one I took last week after being away from a shower and a razor for five days would be a good one... Too bad the film isn't developed yet . OK, I'll see if I can find something less frightening.

    OK, fine, let's see how this one looks.

    This is how I see myself...a small, blurry watercolor ;)

    Hey Speedo...

    At least she didn't say... "no nude shots"

    Here's my usual arsenal of selfs (I've been busy on the other side of the lens recently. Amazingly!)

    This is it... I've never done a self portrait before... not as easy as it looks! Don't think that there will be any more either... ;)

    ugghh....I'm not one for self-portraiture but if you insist...here's the schrackman at his sloppy desk. But at least he's got a new eMac on that sloppy desk!

    Ah, and I found another self-portrait of the wife and myself in Santa Barbara. Thought I had lost this one.

    Rick, I love number six!

    So she didn't say no nude shots, does that mean we can do nude self portraits?
