    Aleks has already had enough, and I only took 8 shots of him (that's all he'd sit still for).

    Hope you're having a Merry Christmas over there in the cold, we're almost done here.

  • David de Groot said:
    Yep, tons of them, so many they've started growing across my upper lip ;-)

    Argh! I have way more hair than Lenin.

    and you should see the ones I wouldn't let him use!!

    (Eek! I just realised that Dave's avatar makes him look like he has a receding hairline - he doesn't, or if he does then it has receded all the way down his back ;))

    great shot. the tone across the face to the black on the left is lovely.

    just wondering, when people do self portraits, how to they AF exactly on the eye?
  • David de Groot said:
    Learn your focal length, use the centre focus point, and then aim appropriately, or at least that's how I do it.

    Great SP David. Good lighting, of course.
    Happy Xmas to you and the family.

    Nifty kit, I'd say.
    Nice shot here, David - good angle and lighting too - and I like the other two of your parents too.

    Thanks :) Not bad for a bit of tooling around. Merry Christmas to you and yours and hopefully you're now fully recovered.

    It is indeed David :) I've done a B&W version of Mum's photo over here:
