Hello,

 

i am trying to do a small series of a few amateurish self portraits with different human facial and body expressions.

 

To emphasize these expressions, feelings and dynamics, i tried to underline these with a few brushstrokes. Maybe not a totally new idea. Anyway...

 

Any comments are very much appreciated. Is it a total waste of time, should I stop immediately or is it worth one ore some more tries with different gestures?

 

Leica M9-P (sorry no M-MONOCHROM) with Summilux 50mm asph @ f 8.0 and flash.

 

Thank you very much for any comments and a happy weekend!

 

Daniel

In my opinion, nothing that offers someone an opportunity to express themselves is a wasted opportunity. When you are most satisfied with your creations and they are at their most authentic, you probably won't have to ask what others think as you will know inside that they are 'right'.

 

Would love to see more eyes as I think that they always tell the story.

Dear Melissa, dear Kurt!

 

Thank you all for your opinions and encouragement.

On Kurt´s request the next one is with eyes (or almost).

 

Inspired by a nearly unknown painting of an absolutely forgotten norwegian painter :rolleyes:.

 

Any comments welcome!

 

Happy saturday
