I’d probably look a lot more sinister in this photo if it had been taken by someone I was about to hurt, rather than by me standing alone in my living room.
Technical Stuff: I love light. And when I can get it to work properly I get very happy. Which is why I like this shot. The one visible eye, and the dark empty space where the other one should be, is exactly what I was trying for and I got it on the first shot… I was using my little pocket digital set only on “portrait”. This is a crop, however. In the original my chest and shoulders are also visible.
I think I look like a minor villain in a Batman comic, and I’m totally cool with that.
Yeah, that’s what I thought. As an introvert this is generally how I look when I walk around at night, so I’m thinking this is why I don’t get a lot of people saying “hey, long time no see”… but it could also be the broken bottle.
I agree about the lighting to get the tone, but I’d love to see this in black and white.
