    Donaldo, a main forum OG and photography major is going to take some good quality and lighting pics for me when I'm done with my cut in about 8 weeks. Some people asked me for pics so I decided to try to take some, I have a good camera (7.2 mega pixel) but I cant ever seem to take a clear picture, I really need to learn how to use the damn thing :mad:

    can anyone give me a good body fat guess? I'm 5'11 201lbs in these pics, I'm going to cut to about ~190lbs in the next 2 months :x:

    yeah, you suck at taking pictures. You need more light, what, you only got one lamp in the whole place?

    I'm really disapointed how I look in these pics too, I have alot of vascularity in my forarms and a little more in my lower abs than the pics show(not that you can see anything clearly)

    well I tried the low light settings on the camera, but what's with the damn blurryness? I dont have a tripod, but everyone I see taking "myspace" style pics holding the camera can make them come out perfect. :squint:

    this was back in Dember I believe. I think I was about 205 with 17% body fat, but I forgot to date the pics. This were taken after I lost about 20lbs.

    now I think I'm in the 13%ish range, I'll figure it out exactly soon.

    I have veins on both sides of my lower obliques, they are very clear, but from my belt link up there is still a little flab. I figure when I get to about 190ish I should have very clear abs if I work them hard, I only do them once a week now :(

    i can see veins in the lower abs..wtf are you cutting for? Just curiosity, or doing a show, or what? Cause you're pretty damn low now.

    EDIT: Ok, post above mine gives reason.

    i can see the V outline, you could gain another 20 lbs before you should consider cutting

    I was 194 before this last bulk, I went upto 206, I'm 201 today. Yes, this is pretty much the leanest I've ever been, I keep bulking/cutting in two month cycles. I'm really going for a Christian Bale in American Psycho physique: http://www.hotbadguys.com/images/bale.jpg at least for the time being.

    You look great. I have the same problem with the blurry pics too all of a sudden when I use the timer...it's weird.

    ~10ish. It's a clean bulk, I'm trying my best to put on muscle without adding any fat at all.
