    I needed a new headshot for a casting call that is tomorrow because I've grown out my hair and I look different that my current headshot.

    Well, long story short, I didn't think about this until about midnight last night so I plopped a softbox on the ground, setup my white sheet (haha), and sat in front of it with the D300 on interval shoot mode.

    I normally have my headshots taken by another photographer because, frankly, I suck at "headshots"... but i thought this came out okay...

    So, 1-10 where does it fall on the headshot scale?


    I'm kind of stuck submitting this picture, so that cant change, but I just wanna know for the hell of it.

    how the night started.. hahaha.

    :dunno: Pretty good I guess. I fucking suck at self shots :o

    edit: arm is kinda distracting.

    7 I guess. I'd like fill light on right side

    wish your hand wasnt there, dont like the photoshopped catch lights in your eyes, dont like your squinty eye.

    other than that nice job, especially for a self done shot.

    I hate the fact that you cut your ear off in the frame. It's okay to center your subject in headshots.

    6. Lighting is pretty good but I feel like your mouth is more in focus than your eyes.

    I know how shitty working by yourself can be. I do it all the damn time.

    It looks pretty good to, but you really need a reflector camera right. I also do believe you have slightly missed focused on the eyes.

    i dont think its terrible at all... you look kinda like a ginger bear gryls... Having said that, I actually like the 2nd pic quite a bit... I feel like the lighting gives you character.

    i'd give it a 7-8 overall... i doubt i'd be able to get results like that at all whatsoever.

    At least not at this point in time.

    Yeah I know, it's kinda hard to control that when you're zoomed in like that and taking pictures of yourself though.

    Probably the case, although the full size file looks like the eyes are very sharp, so it's passable. D300 got to decide where to focus, as I was sitting in front of it. haha.

    Thanks, I thought about that after I had taken all the pics, but like i said, I got lazy so i didn't sit back down.


    haha.. bear grylls eh? Maybe I should send this to his agent and see if can get some work. :noes:

    I'll eat whatever they can throw at me if the money is right... haha.

    Because its cool to be azn?

    Wasn't hard to do. Softbox, flash and camera are all you need. Setup can be seen in the second pic.



    Thanks for the comments guys.

    I'd like to hear more from the people that thought it was in the 1, 2, & 3 area... unless they just rated it that to be homos and didn't have something productive to say. :greddy:
