Me Me Me

Its official, Ade has run out of stuff to put up, so he is putting up a portrait of himself. I didn't take the shot, however I did some processing on it. Go figure.

I added some pseudo lighting on the face, boosted the colours, vignetted and then finally sharpened. Oh yea and I cropped to produce better composition and enhance the pose.

So this is the dude behind àsìkò.

I remember this shot....you didn't take it. So it's not a self portrait. It's a portrait of you!
sk: oops my bad
Wow, nice potrait. The blue background really adds to the beauty of the shot.
sk: thanks
Beautiful portrait!
sk: thanx
Really nice portrait, and a great color blue! I like the way it is composed, too.
sk: thanx Mike
It's nice to put a face to a name! I'm not crazy about the blue background but I do like your expression; it looks very thoughtful. Check out my blog tommorow; my first self-portrait will be posted. Cheers, Brent
sk: thanx Brent, will be checking it out
I agree with Brent its nice to put a face to a name. I like the composition of this shot its a lovely clean portrait.
sk: thanx

Lovely portrait, but I too am not so happy with the blue. I think there could be more subtle colours to complement the shirt. But then that gives the clue to my cautious nature. There are no two ways about it - the blue is bold aand makes it stand out.

So whom should we congratulate for the original image?
sk: thanx hunter. some chic I don't remember her name, oops.
People hardly take photos of me bcos I am always behind the lens, so this shot is very special to me
Nice potrair. Love the contrast.
sk: thank U

Good work. I did not noticed the reprocessing. Reprocessing is like make-up. It is achieved if people cannot notice it. The result is perfect.
If I had such a portrait of myself or my girlfriend, I would frame it ! smile
sk: thanx, dude, thats made my day
Very nice, in a man to man kinda way...
sk: LOL he he he, off course in man to man kinda way

You look constipated in this shot smile

Oh well darn ,we now know what your ugly mug looks like (only kidding). Little dodge on the T zone would have helped.

Nice portrait though

Nice job with the framing.

sk: LOL cheeky bugger
Ummm...hard choice for me but I don't like it much.I feel the colours are too bland - they are good colours but are not just prominant enough - not strikingly beautiful just dim in my sight.The portrait would have been better if you were looking directly at the camera and standing up straight - in my opinion the shadows would come out better and the blue would turn out better.
another great portrait!

This is slightly surreal seeing you didn't take the shot an all, but you did work on it so I guess we can actually say well done. Looks like I'll have to put up something of my mug soon. When you going on break?
sk: getting rid of me already eh? last shot i will put up will be on saturday, going to naija for a few weeks, probably be back to blogging towards the end of may. Who knows what the future holds

That's no fair, you can't put up a portrait of yourself, say its very special to you and then have your ShMood say you're ok with critizism smile

I'll believe your mood, so I don't mean to be hatin'. It is nice to have a face with a name. I like the pose and your expression (and cool hair), but the lighting and background are a little "Glamour Shots"-esque (a chain of shopping mall photo studios in the US)...a little cheesy and portrait studio-y.
