My other side v0

By myp55
My first crack at the concept that would become "My other side" [link] I wasn't happy with the light/colour so waited to redo it in the day, but now I think I prefer the expressions in this one.

Can also be found in the gallery of :iconselfportrait-mania:

Even your art and concepts ten years ago were amazing ^^

Good concept very well implemented.

Not sure about very well implimented, but it gets the idea cross :)

Well, one doesn't want to nit-pick. The right side image (looking into the mirror) is focused on the buttons of the shirt and windows, loosing focus as go up to the head. However, the point was that you implemented the reflection well, and the concept behind it. The emotion of the photo keeps the observer's eye from noticing small things lol.

both side are focused on the window in fact :P That was my old camera, couldnt manual focus, boooo.

Well that sucked. I'm trying to talk my partner into getting a Nikon D90--not looking good--maybe the 60. Our camera has been bust for months. In addition, we are looking at the Panasonic LX3 for pocket convenience times.

The recently annouced micro four thirds system sounds quite good as a compact but usable intermediate between an SLR and a compact. It's got the interchangable and useable lens of an SLR system with the smallness of a compact, perfect.

The "WTF?" look on your face on "this side" is cool. And my good "twin" thinks so too. (kidding....though we all have "twins" somewhere. Mine was a lookalike in school named Lars. Go figure).

I like the this side face :)

There's a contest going that this might fit into if your interested? Its a good image, very Jekyll and Hyde
myp55's avatar
Oh? Do tell.

Its like, an opposites picture, so I think it fits in with the theme.

Wow. This is really quite awesome! I love the idea behind it! You've pulled it off really well. And i agree, the expressions are gold!


For a second there i thought you'd taken photos of a twin? lol
myp55's avatar
Thanks. Two of me? Would surely be the end of the universe.
start-static's avatar
Hahaha I'm sure it wouldn't be. I'd happily have one of them? lol
myp55's avatar
Aww, you're too kind, if I ever get a twin me you can have one of us :)
start-static's avatar
Woo hoo!

This has been a good day for me... Did a kickass reverse parallel park (in preparation for my driving test) AND scored myself a boyfriend! lol.
