I figured it was time for an updated photo of myself. The images with the long hair is my most recent photoshoot however I have changed my hair a LOT since then. So here is the reveal for you all. I hope you like it.
If I said the pic was perfect, it would be truthful but not very helpful. However, I think you have created a near perfect picture. The colors and tones are wonderful, your red hair is striking and grabs the viewer. The lighting is excellent, I tend to over expose mine, which I love, but no one else does. The camera tilt is great, it adds interest to the photo. The overall impression is great and I see the rule of 3's very nicely done for balance. The only thing I guess I don't care for and this is just me is the small part of the tattoo that is visible. I love tats, but in this case, the tat slightly affects the color balance on either side of your necklace. Okay, If I hold my finger up to the screen and cover up the tat, the picture seems sharper to me, deeper, more 3 dimensional. And because the tat falls slightly into the out of focus zone. I think without the tat, I could see this pic as part of a marketing campaign for hair color or clothing, you have created so much presence in the pic. Wonderful!!!
