mystery

Actually, the mystery might be why anyone would color their hair purple, as this photo is not overwhelmingly mysterious. It is dual-purpose, since this week's dogwood challenge was to practice portrait lighting. This is with window light (and was almost 3 stops under camera choice when focusing on old broken tripod. still seems just a hair overexposed.) and is supposed to be Rembrandt lighting.
interesting, it brings out a lot of character in your face. would make a moody black and white

I say this is a good start. I like the way your face is shadowed.

The Rembrandt triangle is there as is the strong connection between subject and viewer, very well done.

I look spectacular on black and I think you have been a pretty good job of getting the lighting just write too! I guess I'll have to go read up on what Rembrandt lighting is.

Well done - I gave up on trying out the lighting techniques with self portraits. Far too challenging for me. You succeeded well.
