i haven't participated in the past two on assignments because i'm suffering from Photographers Block (its very serious) but this should be interesting!

I was like 'Oh My Gosh' when I saw the theme because I really thought it was rather interesting.

I learn photography by 'subjects' (so far I've covered 'Macro' in the syllabus by myself) and now I am touching on People/Portraiture so this theme will be fun. It will be even more of a challenge since I have to either shoot a mirror or use tripod+self timer.

Good luck everyone! I know many of y'all have beautiful self portraits!

Orsan i too like your mean and moody photo,yep i can see a similarity with che, but i also see you as a baddie straight out of a spaghetti western.,minus the cheroot and a poncho. Gunning for a few votes there i bet :lol: :lol: :lol: Regards sue

Thanks Gordon. I think the spark for the idea came partly because of Defiance's thread about smileys. Since I felt it wasn't so easy to come up with something original I thought I'd better post early so as not to risk someone else having the same idea and posting one before me. :mrgreen:
That has happened at least once before on a previous assignment.

Ben

Well for me at this moment "Orsan" is way out in front with Katiebug coming a close second, someone will have to come up with something really spectacular to get my vote.

I'd hate to spoil the fun, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, but I have a question.

How come Orsan's entry, "Che Osbourne" was on his flickr since September 8?

Take a good look yourself : http://www.flickr.com/photos/marksmagiceye/2839948308/
