First Teenager!

I begged a friend to let me take pics of her 14-year-old daughter. It finally gave me a chance to use that 50mm lens, which was wonderful. (She can hold still enough for me to focus!) Anyway, here's some that I've already run through Photoshop. I'll probably post more later. I was thrilled with the way these turned out.

I went to Wal-Mart today to pick up some pics I'd uploaded from the internet. Get this:

They asked me if my pictures were copyrighted!!!

My pics were good enough that they had to ask if I'd copied them from a professional photographer!



There's a reason I'm always behind the camera. I hate the way I look, and if I'm behind it, I can't be in front of it at the same time.

Even so, I occasionally get an urge to take a self-portrait (or at least attempt it). If I hate the picture, I can just delete it. It's a lot better than being handed horribly unflattering pictures someone else took of me. I took these in my living room, so lighting is awful. My skin isn't quite that orange, but I couldn't get Photoshop to make it look any better. Anyway, here ya go: A brutally honest portrait of me.
