  #195 Self-portrait
Entry 5 of 20
   
 
All Those Years Ago       ©2017 ysal
Panasonic DMC-GX7       5th place, 155 points
1/20s, f1.7, ISO 125, 40mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Cropped and straightened; Applied vignette; Converted to B&W using built-in tool in Elements; Resized       Extra Info: This is a picture of me when I was around two. This is not a composite, I took a picture of the old picture, printed it and taped it to a stick.

Many thoughts went through my mind. Am I living up to my parents' expectations? I'd like to think so.

    Not sure why my vote is not showing, I voted this no. 1! And I am sure I voted, on Sunday! It said vote recorded so many hours and days ago, don't see my vote though.

    Thank you for all the nice comments and votes!

As some of you pointed out, aligning the cutout was very difficult. I'm controlling the camera with a wired remote completely blindly because the cutout is covering in eyes. I just shot a whole bunch holding the cutout slightly differently every time, and this was the best of the bunch.

    This is very good. I appreciate you sharing your sentiments with us, how you came to create this shot. Common questions that we all (should) have. Minor thing, but I might have held the photo up a bit higher to block all my forehead or, alternatively, created the photo so that my face showed kind of equally in a circumferential manner around the photo. Again, nicely done.
