Selfportrait I - Dismal Jester by myownself Selfportrait I - Dismal Jester by myownself
This is my first post here. I'm ambidextrous, color-blind math grad student, 22. From time to time I wish to ditch my college and do photography but I'm afraid I appear a bit like a coward really and of course such attitude doesn't lead to anything except mediocricity, to be generous. Therefore my photos are being used exclusively in a utilitarian fashion for my own hedonistic fulfillment only ;o)

Enjoy and thank you!

i can honestly say.. wow!!!!!!!!!
your gallery is one of the very few that i have gone through & really looked at each & every image..
i feel as if i've been on a journey..
one of yourself..
your inhibition in expression is huge!!!
as well as your talent & technique!
good luck with the exhibition.. you are every bit an artist & should do well in this

Yay for utilitarian hedonism! And yay for jesters! A very well-composed photo: the crop is great, and the way you lit the fuzzball, face, and hat work perfectly. After you look at this photo for a while, you start to want to step into that world...

just stopping by, to re-comment on this piece, because i did it a great injustice...way back when i commented on it.

It is a quite amazing piece, and very impressive work, especially for your first submission. I really love the expression you've put into this, the make up, costuming, all great.

You've captured an amazingly creative, and interesting perspective for a portrait, and i'm quite envious.
great black and white work.

my favorite part would most definetly be the lighting, it seems so surreal, I'm guessing you editted it. it is fantasticly well captured.

this is a beautiful piece of photography, and I wish more people could capture such amazing emotion and feeling in their work.

much respect to you for creating this.

take it easy,

Excellent use of light here... I love the soft shadows that play tricks with this image. The expression is priceless as well. I think you're more of a "WILD"life photographer, conveying life in an interesting, unique way. Coming to your gallery I thought I would see deer and birds, but I was happily surprised. A very creative porfolio... I think you could do this full time! Have faith!
