    That's the name of the assignment i'm working on for photo class...

    I wanted F&N's opinion on the shot I think i'm gonna use.

    Please. tell me the truth. (not that I expect this crowd to sugarcoat anything...)

    Am I that flabby and ugly? Damn...

    That's me. And that's 465. And I pulled it. When that was shot...

    So I guess the shot's a no go for class?

    I am the photographer.

    Infrared remote release + timer...

    Took me forever.

    But that doesn't matter... If the photo's beat, it's beat...

    ouch..you guys are so bad...
    its a cool photo but could have been done better showing more of the lift to see whats going on. Some people would thing your sitting down on a bench grabbing the bar and gritting your teeth like Ahnold.

    like i said before- it just looks like nothing is really going on. I wish the photo was snapped a little later into the lift.
    also ever think about wearing a shirt? maybe a wifebeater.

    seems like a cool idea. i think you can do better with a different angle that puts more of you into the pic. maybe put the camera in front of the bar, facing the mirror, and angle the mirror differently.

    also what others said, have the bar off the ground more.

    that's a heavy dead, btw. :noes:

    edit: and maybe replace the straps with chalk

    There is poopie on your mirror. It's not really a great shot IMO. The concept is very cool but it just didn't turn out well. I'm not an expert!

    youre sitting down on what looks to be a stool, wearing straps, wearing running shoes, and have an unrealistic look on your face

    those are the flaws that i see

    it would probably be more interesting if you were in the middle of your lift.
