Well, I was going to do a self-portrait with my new prescription sunglasses, but this shot without them trumped the others, so here we are.

This is really an absolutely lovely shot! I like the relatively simple color palette it has!

Thank you! I wanted the light to stand out as the most important element, so it's nearly monochrome.

Thank you. The background is our bedroom wall - paint colour courtesy of the previous owners.

Profile shots are hard to pull off. Well done!

I think that's what made seeing my eyes one of the key elements of the image. They can't be seen clearly in the shots with the glasses.

I love the tones in this! Did you do a lot of post processing?

Not much, just colour adjustment and some noise reduction.

Well, thank you. I'm glad, otherwise my penchant for posting self-portraits would be extremely annoying, I imagine!

Thank you. I thought the lighting on my eyes was an important element in the image, which is why the ones with the shades didn't work as well.

It's a wonderful shot. You look fantastic in it. How did you get the lighting / background to match your skin tone so well?

Our bedroom walls are painted a deep brick red. It makes a striking background. I put a cooling filter on in post-processing to suck out the more extreme orange tones.

Thank you. I'm glad the lighting stands out - I was hoping it would, which is partly why the palette is almost monochrome.
