My first proper self portrait, I've deliberately made me look around 10 years older with some lightroom and Photoshop PP as it's not what about what I look like but what I feel like after a long week in work.

Hope you like it C&C Always Welcome..

I think you played the notes in the right order with this one.


Cheers

You did a great job with the post-processing... Is that a ringflash I see in your catchlights? My only complaint with the first photo is that the tip of your nose is a bit too hot... just dropping the exposure just a bit would help make it a bit less distracting :)

Thanks I agree about the nose, it was a difficult balance between the small aperture for the black background, manually adjusting the flash power for the ringflash and being right up close to the lens. I was a touch further away for the second one.
