Me, week three

Well here it is, the photo you've all been waiting for with bated breath. My third attempt at a self-portrait. This week I decided to go yellow in honor of Halloween.

Me Week 3



  1. You could be a Simpson!

    You look great.

  2. Hi Bitter! Long time no talk -- love the self portrait series. how did you do the color in this picture? I am guessing either color balance or flash gel-type thing? Are you using off camera flash in the room?

    Love the pix, and the weekly assignment. :)

  3. @Laramie - DOH

    @Columbia :) The only light I used in the shot is an overhead compact florescent bulb. My front room/studio was darkly lit by afternoon light spilling in through the window.

    I udjusted the white balance in the shot to get my skin looking semi-normal and saw the blue cast behind me.

    I massaged it in photoshop to enhance the blue color. (I love that blue! :)

  4. Lissie - This is beautiful! I wouldn't have said that your face was too yellow by looking at it initially. After reading your comment, however I thought, okay, it is yellow. Yellow and blue are complimentary, so I think that's why the photo works. Aside from the fact that you're berry beautiful!

  5. Man! Flattery will get you everywhere. lol
