Photo-A-Day #972 12/06/07, originally uploaded by BenSpark.

I took this one a while ago in December. Here is the description from that day. This is for Photo Hunters. This week’s theme is Self.

I didn’t find anyone to shoot a portrait of today. So that is two self portraits for the December Challenge. After a 2 hour drive, a dinner alone and another hotel to check into I took my gorillapod, set it up on the shower rod, set my point and shoot to timer, color accent mode and no flash. Then after a bunch of not so great photos I decided upon this one. I wanted the red on the T-shirt to really pop, but I am pink so my skin tone showed up on the color select. I used PhotoShop Elements to edit the saturation and contrast to get this effect. More at The BenSpark

    Teena,
    Harleys are awesome, I don’t have one but I have a ton of t-shirts and I collect a Harley pin from every shop I have ever visited (I have over 100 now).

    Claudia,
    Check out the podcast Photoshop Elements Killer Tips. They would help very much on learning the product.

  7. Drew says:

    Thanks Graham, your self portrait is very cool. Great job with that.

  8. Kristian Liebrand says:

    The photo is very good especially the beard and the Harley T-Shirt looks damn good on him. Hope let me also take a photograph in the same way and get lots and lots of comments from people.
