Testing toy photography for the first time. The light sabre took the longest time to get done. I even studied the fighting scenes in "Star Wars - The Force Awakens" to see how much it emits light to it's surroundings but it was fun.
Would appreciate any feedback.

Well, it's a selfie alright...actually just a part of last week's selfportrait theme I had. This was actually one of the failed shots due to focus being off but the as it was otherwise pretty good pose I decided to try and rescue it with editing. Can't fix out of focus but there are other ways to work around it to get at least a decent result. 
Anyway, posting here to get some feedback as I'm new to portrait photography.
Let's face it...
This week's, 4(?) of 52, project was to make a self portrait and as I always wanted to try this technique I decided to use it on myself. It wasn't all that bad so I'll upload it here too for feedback.

Hi everyone,

I'm just a random Finnish guy with burning passion for photographic arts and I'm here to share my amateur works with you. I hope I can receive some contructive critique from all you cool people out there.

I want to explore every genre of photography and not limit myself in any manner.
I hope my glimpses of the world help you understand yourself and the world.

It's a pleasure to share my work with you all! Keep spreading the joy...:)

Cheers, my friends!

Hi to anyone who still might be following this page in spite of the silence and *crickets* in here!

I have not published any new photos for over 2 years! I could come up with a number of stupid excuses to why that is but the real reason is that I simply haven't had the motivation to do it. At some point I started to get "bored" with my own style of photography which lead to complete lack of motivation and ideas. But that should not have been the reason to quit! If nothing else, I should have just continued no matter what but I didn't and for that I apologise to you.

So at the end of the last year I finally bought a new computer that will be able to handle any editing work I could ever throw at it. I've also made an unofficial New Year resolution to myself to have a 52-week project where I produce, but not necessarily publish, a new photo every week for 52 weeks in a row.

Anyway, it feels good to get going again. Looking forward to see what this year will bring!

Hi. It's CalleighB. I changed my page, but wanted to still follow you. Are you okay my friend? Still strength training?
JanneO Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2016  Hobbyist Photographer
Hi Calleigh,

Yes, I'm great. Better than ever with the training in mind. Unfortunately I still haven't found the proper inspiration to continue my photography and am procrastinating about it as I want to continue but am all out of ideas :/

How are you?
SenoritaBlack Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2016
Hi! :D

I'm glad to hear that you're doing great. I miss your photography, but I understand.
I have no gift with that whatsoever, but I always say that if I did, I'd take pictures of things that other people call "ugly" and make them show unexpected beauty. Maybe that's just the writer in me?

I'm well, thank you. I am single now and back home in Alabama. I've just gotten an opportunity to work with a children's charity and I'm excited. I'm still writing, and now I am dabbling in photography, but I really suck at it. :lol:

It's good to hear from you my friend. Take care. Be well. :heart:
