    Used a reflector to try and achieve a dramatic lighting effect with two flashes (580ex) powered by pocket wizards. Still working out wether I like it. I added some noise and a few lines to get a nice effect and personally I think I nailed it. Would be great to hear your critique.

    Thanks.

    I think it's pretty darn clever that you took a self portrait of yourself.

    LMAO ... this reminds me of an old photo I found just the other day. It's a horrible shot ... but the memory is still there!

    I think I'd like to subscribe to mad magazine again. I don't know why, but the urge was there when I opened this thread.

    Hahaha, funny - I was just thinking the same thing as I opened this thread.

    So if we fold your face in half does it turn into something else? :p

    Vegemite ad :p

    I'll have to find some of my old photos from when I was a kid but it's not likely as when I was 9 I found a whole heap and threw them out.... Really don't like my photo being taken but regret throwing those away. God kids are stupid. :rolleyes:
