Self Portrait in Black and White


This was a picture I took of myself with the old "hold the camera out in front of yourself and click" technique that I learned in film school. Afterwards, I tinted it black and white, added a slightly grainy texture, and called it good. Mom calls this my Charles Manson picture. For the full effect, make sure you click the picture, and then expand that one too.

Charles Manson or some other scary guy! Why not try instead to capture your warm, friendly inner essence? For deeper analysis, maybe some part of you enjoys scaring people?

woo, how psychological of you, mom! Russ, I really like the picture, minus the buggy eyes. The black and white with the pixelated-ness makes it look old school. Very artsy. I'm sure Mr. Thompson would like it. :)

Hey Russ! I have a counter too!
I think that it gives you two every time you visit your own site to make you feel good or something.

But, Hey! Nice pix. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I think you really capture your warm, friendly inner essence! Keep up the bug-eyes! It is soooo you.

And a frisbee,

Will

I took the pic last summer after work one day, just messing around with nothing better to do. The look I was going for was supposed to be more "intense" than "creepy", but as you can see, it is pretty much just creepy:) So, for deeper analysis, maybe some part of me is scary?:)

I'm sorry I said that. I don't think you are very scary at all. :)

Please put something new on here. I get scared every time I see this. You are not scary, but the picture certainly is. :) Did you have fun at the Mariner's game?
