Just got myself a speedlite! Been experimenting with off camera flash and low key lighting. Took a few self portraits tonight so may as well share the results.

(Also local shop owner gave me a mega discount on the t shirt for taking some photos for him recently, these are my way of saying thanks)

Good shots, a little too bright I think plus I can see the flash in your glasses. Always hard to shoot someone (especially yerself! lol) with glasses!

Thanks your the feedback mate.

Yeah i noticed the reflection but found it very difficult to get it out of the shot especially within the limited space I had to work in. Stupid glasses! I will go with contact lenses next time :lol:

I will take it back into Photoshop and take the brightness down a little. I really wanted the colours on the tshirt to pop but think I may have gotten a little carried away :oops: :)

Lovely portrait above!!


:shock:

That gear is HOT!

But I think this is an interesting series, pretty clever actually :)

Thanks. I'm in love with my lens. I'd marry it.

Nice!
