yes, i was scared in your house without doors...
and i'm leaving all of love's ashes and memories
behind me when i go

- Keith Caputo



Keith Caputo's music is simultaneously uplifting and devastating and it breaks my heart every time I hear it. His voice is like an adrenalin shot to the soul.


Full-view for focus-related detailage. I don't usually tell people to full-view cause I figure they will if they want to, but this really is better when you see it big.


Ps. I was not on drugs when I took this. Blame the dilated pupils on not enough sleep and too much coffee.

:)

I love the tones and shading of this photo. How well the dirt and the eyes blend together for the effect and mood of the photo.

Again you do have a knack for headshots

Thank you :hug: The make-up was even stronger looking in person, without the bleaching effect of the flash. I looked very strange indeed and it took quite a while to get my face clean after this one.

Thanks :hug: I was having a weird day when I took this...it was photo-therapy. I was sitting on the floor between the bed and the wall, pouring water over myself, crying, taking pictures. I don't do that kind of thing too often ;)

wow...
where to begin?

this photograph could be commented separately from the middle up and down.

the upper half: those eyes! intense, aggressive, supplicant, provokative, belligerent, suggestive...

the lower half: those lips, sweet, tender, innocent, sexy in their pout.

it's a very complex image. i love the tonalities.

excellent.

I love the way your hair is thrown over your face, but doesn't take away from your eyes.

I was dripping water all over the floor while I was taking this. There's something strangely enjoyable and squirting a bottle of water over your own head indoors :D

Very true, though I usually squirt it on others heads so I can cut or style their hair lol.

I promise I wasn't sad...it was just the effect that the music has on me. I'm going to see Keith Caputo next month and I know I'm going to cry through the whole gig.

This is a really lovely photo, I like the eyes in focus - I can never get them in focus. I love the dull colours, and the almost-Sepia look. The dilated-pupils just give this a more spooky look which adds to the dark mood. :heart:

:icontanyasimonesimpson:
TanyaSimoneSimpson Featured By Owner Aug 11, 2008
Thank you :hug: I took about 20 photos and this was the only one with the focus exactly where I wanted it. Not sure if that counts as trial and error or luck, but it always seems to go that way for me with a shallow(ish) DOF and self-portraits.
