gawd, I miss shooting film.

this was supposed to be part of my thesis, but it probably won't be. I underestimated how much seeing myself makes me physically sick. I know my last self portrait was all optomistic, but I've found that it's just a whole lot easier for me if I just go back to hating every inch of myself, rather than trying to like and or change it.

I need this shirt. I kinda like the black sort of white photos :sprint:

Thanks, I like the style as well.

It's an old Paul Frank shirt ... shouldn't be too hard to find.

this is great!!!! great use of humor and death of field (i know every one is going to say that one and they're right). what are you doing your thesis on?

My thesis was supposed to be a continuation of that project with the transparencies ... sort of just an evaluation of the internal struggles of an over-weight black gay man (or the self-inflicted struggles, I should say). But I dunno if I want to do that anymore .. this one shot just made me really angry, and I can't think of anything that I want to commit 8 months to for a project. And the clock is ticking!

What's the subject of your thesis?
I very much like this photograph. The message is extremely cute and the shallow dof really enhances that feeling.

The subject was going to be self-portraits ... sort of a critical and somewhat cruel evaluation of myself ... though I'll probably give up and do something else, because I really don't want to shoot myself for 6 months. lol.

I can imagine it to be quite exhausting. Besides that, selfportraits are such a difficult subject, they get cheesy so quickly. Good luck on the continueing of your search to a new subject.
