Now check to see which position gave the best focus (e.g. for fine detail on tie and PS) and stand in that spot for all subsequent poses.

 

Another trick is to use narrow apertures (say f11 and higher) to give more depth of field. But you will need more light for this. Or you can up the ISO. Or decrease the shutter speed. Or get a better fucking camera.

 

 

p.s. with all this apparent expertise, I still take shite photos. Go figure.

 

Haha worst thing is, I took some photography lessons in school and not so long ago, but never tried self portraits. I need to read the owners manual again cause I don't remember how to set up a different f/number. :(

Spent almost 2 weeks in France, visiting Paris, Nice, and many smaller cities/towns/villages in the South of France. We had an amazing time. Here are some photos...

^^^ *Sigh* I miss Paris. You know, they always say Paris has the best food, and it's damn true. Even the lesser restaurants were a cut above what you'd find elsewhere. My favorite was Le Hotel. They have a Michelin star restaurant that is insanely good.

Thanks. Your opinion is one that I greatly value. As to the silhouette, you pretty much nailed what we were going for. The goal was to be versatile while not usual. So the styling is very conservative while the cloth has some eccentricity.

Odd choice for the trou, I know, but I was feeling funky. And that this is how I do funky....is sad.

Beautiful tie. Really adds a great texture to the fit.

I think you are right here, it is a bit big IRL.

 

I also really like your jacket. Do you find that it is close to as versatile as the standard navy?

Very nice and I certainly appreciate your attempt at funkiness. Love that jacket, but is the breast pocket pattern matching off, or is that just your stance?

Didn't give them enough fabric. CMT learning curve.
