photoblog image Through it all

Through it all

I decided to try something different today, it might not be to everybodys taste which is cool. I always wanted to try this type of shot and this is my first attempt. I really wanted it to look better than this, but I guess that will improve when I master this type of photography. What do you guys think?

Oh yea in case U were wondering, this is still part of the self-portrait series, which I might carry on till I get bored. Really sorry I don't blog everyday, I get really busy and its hard to keep up, hopefully something nice tomorrow.

Through it all I still stand.

Excellent work :-D period!
sk: WOW thanx Mr Skee
hey asiko,

really killer shot. i love the details of the the leaves and the shadows that are cast on your face. i also really like how you kind of fade into the background, and how your expression compliments this position.
sk: thanx very much Nicole

Very well done Ade. You do look like you are one with the earth. I think it fits well with all the other pictures in the series as it shows yet another side of the man. The same person can look at this picture and come to a different conclusion everytime. That makes it an extremely successful shot.
sk: thanks tinkerbell

Absolutely lovely STONKING composition, shot & PPing, only HUGE PROBLEM the Subster has is the model, If only it was the handsome Subster's face in the shot, it would have been PERFECT tongue tongue tongue LOL

i like this very much, but i must say the lighter leaves against ur skin are a bit distracting. other than that... A+
sk: thanx very much Funmi
Fantastic. From the thumbnail i knew it would be and you didn't disappoint me one bit. Excellent PP, excellent concept, excellent shot.

P.S., you weren't standing half naked in the bushes, were you wink?
sk: LOL ur funny, the shot wasn't taken in the bush, its a combination of two shots, one of the bush and one of me

It's growing on me Asiko (no pun intended). I feel that your previous self portraits were so strong that I am judging this against them. This is my least fav'so far, I think that the concept is great but the title "Through it All" to me implies hardship, pain and suffering but the leaves do not say that to me but maybe that is what you are trying to say? All the best
Mal
sk: thanx I am not very good with titles, I just thot of the first set of words that came to my head. I wanted people to make their own minds up about what the image might mean
Interesting composition.
i love the hilight and shadow on his face...beautiful montage shotsmile)

Very, very, unusual shot. It's like you fell asleep in the woods and the weed grew up around you. I think the tones may need a little something though.
I love the light and shadow detail of the leaves on your face and body. B&W is perfect.

hey ade it's nice. have you heard of the green man? From Wikipedia: (the Green Man as "the archetype of our oneness with the earth" ...depicting an earth-centered concept of male divinity). i like the pic, but i'd prefer less harsh shadows on your face.
