Digital photog self portrait assignment 1

{It was really hard to take the picture without looking through the lens. And my camera has an automatic flash, so I had to hold the flash down with one hand and press the shutter release with the other. I also edited the color and contrast in photoshop.}

Is this your first assignment-self portrait? Itís awesome! I always found that reflections in door knobs were cool and different. It almost has an Alice in Wonderland effect of Alice shrinking after the eat me drink me torts. I also like how you twisted the camera and gave the doorknob a different angle. When I was viewing you picture in smaller form, at first I thought it was a candle holder. When I clicked on your picture to enlarge, I realized that it was a door knob. So I liked that mystery. I also like the repeated reflections throughout the knob...love how you captured it. Have a wonderful evening.

Critique by Heidi Sampson:

Wonderful shot! The angle gives a lot of depth to the photo. I also like how you worked the camera to take the picture without covering your face. I agree with Tess as she said this photo reminded her of Alice in Wonderland. This abstract picture is a wonderful example of how we may want to walk into another world at times, just like Alice opened the door to Wonderland.

Awesome shot! Way to think outside of the box for the first assignment. This is pretty cool. I like how there is definite focus on the door knob but a disporportioned picture of yourself. Cool idea!

The high contrast of this shot has a really stylish feel. The fact that you have the doorknob on an angle and cropped off the bottom of the frame gives this capture a sense of movement through the composition. Good!

Love this. The color tones give this picture a glowing effect. You also look like you are really inside of the door knob--like a genie :p. The direction of the lock and of your many reflections line up nicely and lead my eyes to your main reflection.
