This is an amazingly striking image!

The light, composition and use of space is great! (All that technical goodness!)

Now lets get on to wardrobe (one of my favorites!)...
Beautiful and earthy and grounded. I LOVE that you used what must be local feathers in your head piece!

This is greatness!

I like this a lot :) mysterious and reveiling at the same time.

Thanks, Vizually!

I am ever so lucky to live in a cave-like dwelling! If you stand far enough away from background elements in my house, you end up with a very dark background and through a little contrast increase, it becomes completely black. I used a home depot work light and my flash on my camera (as dim as possible) for lighting and then adjusted with dodge and burn. The lights, of course, are entirely fictional.

I'm so happy to have gotten a comment on this! Not only is it a self-portrait, but I'm also really proud of it!

oooh i love the lighting and composition! You used a tripod, have you set up a studio somewhere, or how did you set the surround for your self portrait?
