    So I've been browsing through excessively stylized portraits all day...

    I think I'm gonna attempt a levitation shot in the backyard before it gets too cold to wear flimsy dresses. In the meantime, here's me as a vampire or something.

    @Oldhat, Argos, NOW??? As if we didn't have enough people to join this club before.

    I don't know where y'all have been, but I already have my crushin-on-Argos pins and jacket.

    @Argos, thanks!

    @Bill, that's fantastic. Your photos of late have a great consistency.

    Thanks sleestak!

    and @allana - thank you! It is probably 50% having a real camera, and 50% working hard. I'm learning the pain of taking a whole lot of pictures and only showing the one that works. Also, I'm better at keeping photoshop adjustments subtle, and being able to work with camera raw image files instead of jpegs is a bit of a revelation.

    OddBill -- I can't help but wonder what you're looking at without actually wanting an answer.
    (NOTE: "Looking at" could be something off frame or, more likely, something that happened in the past.)

    Agree with Slee, @Oddbill that is a fantastic self portrait. I love the color treatment and the level of detail. Also, the expression; inscrutable. It may just be a having 'real camera' but honestly no one gets one what doesn't have an idea how they want to use it. Ambition, my friend, it gets you all kind of places. I have been watching your work keep improving here on this thread over the course of the last year since regular internet connectivity became a real thing again and it is inspiring, man! Keep it coming!

    On a technical note: yeah, RAW makes a huge difference in terms of what you can do. The effort of ruthlessly vetting it down to one image and then editing that image to more closely represent the ideal of it that you had in mind when you snapped the shutter is worth it. That one image is made sooooo much more powerful for standing its own.
    @Allana, I love them! The second is much more interesting to me though I can't really say why.

    @Sizer, the 28th. Is there some reason to be excited? Do we share a birthday?

    If the 28th of November is your birthday, then we did indeed share!
