[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I know, I know a self portrait woop dee doo. This one is kind of show to me to see how far I have come since two years ago. Now happy in life and with myself. Although I don't get a chance to play with my camera all that much these days that'll change especially with spring right around the corner.
Well heres me down nearly a hundred pounds with no idea how I lost it. I tell my doc and my friends it's because I'm happy in life now because it definitely has nothing to do with how I eat lol.
Ready to take on the world and all it's challenges and hope all of you who took the time to read all this babble a great day and may your life be filled with happiness

WOW!! Just an amazing transformation, but for me, you look just as beautiful as you always have! Love the shot, very natural. I would have removed the flash shine off your face, but either way! GORGEOUS!

Well, to be honest, apart from the expression, this is not a very flatering portrait, due to many things, such as lighting. Why not use naturel light from a window, give it some angle, and shadows, it creates a mood and some definition of the face. Here the light is flat. Choice of focal lenght, wide angle lens, ain't really a good choice, specially while shooting up close. Tho I understand, you're probably holding the camera? A little distance, and longer lens, created a much naturel look, when it come to dimension.

Aside from that, congradulation for your weight lost, not always easy, but much better for your health. Take care.
