Figuring out whether to darken flash photos with the new camera, or to lighten photos will take some test shooting, which is not a timely thing to do on a Monday morning.

As for the shoes, they are To Boot NY, from the summer Saks clearance sale - stolen at a most advantageous price.

Thanks, in any case, your Spoo-ness.

No pic from me today (cue a chorus of cheers); I was in jeans & an odd jacket, so I'm going to save it up to post as my entry into this week's contest this Friday (cue a chorus of groans), unless I do something similar again between now and them.

Jeepers. Consistently. Jeepers.

This is one sassy looking pocket square! But, isn't that what pocket squares are supposed to do? Great combination of color and patterns.

I'd try to stay away from the (camera) flash. The auto white balance seems off (or are the walls yellowish?); maybe try a different setting (based on the type of light you use).

If you have the room to put the camera further away from you and zoom in a bit, that would help improve the pics as well.

Is that so they match your "smokey eyes"?

Looks good.

Dreary, cool Monday, which makes the debut of a cool blue tie seem timely.
post #32740 of 37075
^^^Acrid, that tie clip will look much better worn at an angle.

There has to be a voice of dissent on this fit... and I guess it's just mine. I realise you were probably going for a 'riot of colour/pattern', but for me this was just too much. The shot sans jacket looked great however - the purple jumper on it's own giving just the right amount of visual pop.

Still hanging out at home this week. If retirement is anything like this, I can't wait.

T shirt is actually a slightly darker/less pinkish red than it appears here (at least on my monitor).

Your "down a notch" is my redline. Still, this is a great fit for you. That combination makes the cufflinks accents, not focal points. I like it.

Stellar, as usual, though I think I prefer you in slightly darker colors. That is strictly my personal preference however, and should rightly be summarily dismissed.

The walls are a cream color, but not as yellowish as the photos look. I'll have to check the white balance - as I've only started playing with the camera this weekend, I'm still low on the learning curve. I would like to avoid the flash - I get enough negative feedback on shiny surfaces in my photos as it is, and I don't mind a bit of chiaroscuro, if the rest of the color range is correct.

Unhappily, my living room is a typical NYC apartment - long, narrow rooms, and if I change the locality of the photo setup, the world will see what a sty the place really is

Yeah, my place faces west so I only have good light in the afternoon. I want to do good WAYWRN photos, but lighting is an issue and I don't have a tripod, or anybody to take pictures of me. If my lady is over I am always gone before she wakes up. I would feel silly asking coworkers...
