I thought I would have another go at a self portrait, 10 second timer shot. I would have liked to get a bit more light on that back eye, but It's pretty tricky lighting yourself.

I quite like this one Richard - Well done! The shot feels slightly 'tight' to me but you are correct, it's difficult to light yourself.

And there you are mate. Lets see what you want to tell us here ;)

Married ... hands off girls. Musician ... or guitar thief. Leather jacket and serious expression ... moody, cold or just miserable. Doesn't bite fingernails. Ever so slightly unshaven ... a touch of rebel. No background ... secretive. Uses Shell Oil and Champion sparkplugs, likes short walks on long beaches, Sinatra movies and flowers that make you laugh.

How am I doing?? :)

This would be a good thread starter. To post a self portrait and have other's " read into it", just for the humour factor:clap:

Thanks for looking...

Marko - I see what you mean about the tightness, I was quite aggressive with the crop as my green background material isn't very large, I will have a go with a different background next time. Another though I have had this morning, is if I want to use a SP image for website avatar, I should think about what the image would look like cropped square.

MA - Very nice profiling :laughing:... :lightbulb you should get a job with the police!!!!

Kawarthabob - Good Idea, I'm happy for anyone to jump in on this thread or start a new one... :thumbup:

Bambi - Thanks :thankyou:

Very nice self portrait, Richard. I quite like your "arty" look and do not mind the close crop at all.
