Part of a series I am working on.
Self Portrait.



A few weeks ago  I photographed a couple who were gold miners, they had brought in bags full or iron rich red earth, afterwards I asked if I could keep it to use for a personal shoot. The colours looked gorgeous in the studio.
was a bit of an effort to clean up all the gold paint and dirt afterwards.

Stunning. I'm not sure though, if cropping the imagea little on the right wouldn't be better for composition

Always a fan of your work and this piece is no exception.  I'm trying to say this in a way that doesn't take away from the effort put into the paint, the lighting, the composition and environment. They're all very well done and carry and display your talent very effectively. But that dirt falling out of your hand has stolen the show for me! That was captured just right and to me, makes the image. Beautifully done!

wonderful.  I like the way you lit the subject.  Cleaning up is a way for you to suffer for your art :)

Personally, I like the fact that you're not centered. It gives it more of a golden ratio feel.

This really is an amazing shot. Truly artistic photography is seldom seen, but recently you have been coming up with some whopper shots.

If I had the space for hanging art on my walls I'd definitely want this one, and oddly I think I'd hang it on a dark green wall, with furniture that toned with the earth colour.

I don't envy you having to clean that up either. :nod:

My only complaint, which is very minor, is that your face isn't centered and it's messing with my OCD.  It looks like your centered from fingertip to elbow but it's put your face off center.  I'd crop the left edge a bit and put your face in the center because that's the main focus of the image.  My brain can tell your eyes are off to the right a bit and it doesn't like it.  That could just be me, though.  I'm weird like that.

The color contrast is spot on, and I love your head piece. As usual, you have delivered another incredible self portrait.
