I thought it would be cool to all share our self portraits. Everyone has some form of one, I'm sure. So this could be a cool thread.

It would be great if with a photo, you also said what gear you used to achieve it.

I'll go first. I used a cheap tripod, the Olympus OM-D EM-5 with the 45mm f/1.8 lens and the Canon 430EX MKii flash (on camera, worked a treat). I originally shot in colour but converted it to B&W and did some more processing to bring out all the detail and flaws in my skin. All processing was done on an iPad with Snapseed and Photoforge2 (amazing apps btw).

I love self-portraits so I won't let this one die without adding at least one. But you should add the photo using the html code rather than a link.

I tried to do that but my image just wasn't showing up. Consequently, I can't see your image. Might be because I'm on an iPad atm though.

So exciting, no one ever ask to see a photo of me! I apologize in advance for the 4 photo mini-flood.

I put a pan lid on the floor of the kitchen and shot this one:

While snapping away in the pit-band for "Oklahoma!" gave my E-PM1 with the Panny 20mm to the keyboard player, and she took this:

So, OK not a self portrait, but a portrait of self, and probably the best recent. :wink:

This came out of extreme boredom one day that I happened to get a bloody lip on. I took this is my bathroom with my E-P3 and my 20mm right against my face(hence the big nose in the photo) while using the bathroom mirror to view the LCD screen and compose my shot.

Not sure if I like it in color or b&w
