In The Skin X by GPhoenix In The Skin X by GPhoenix
Every time I asked him to look into the mirror the photograph gave a fake feeling, it clearly told I has asked him to look. So I waited till the guy would do it on his own, so it'd look more natural. I was only praying for my stupid camera to not blur this shot.



This is one of my favorite shots of my final presentation for my small photography course.
Most of the shots are here: [link] and you can see the video I made with my photographs here: [link]


Taken with a Nikon Coolpix L120
Shutter Speed: 1/50 sec
Aperture: f/3.2
ISO: 400
Focal Lenghth: 5.1 mm

Very big THANK YOU to the guys from the Spider Tattoos in V. N. Gaia and the tattooed guy whose name I never got.




EDIT: *Gaaaaaasp!* Daily Deviation? Really?? I am shocked! Thank you all so much, it good to know my little work was worth it! :heart: I can't go to all to say thanks for the fav because, to my surprise, it has had a good few favs, so I say it here THANK YOU FOR FAVING!! :hug:

*major blush* I am glad you liked, the guy was super-nice to let me be around as he got tattooed. He was appreciating the first one, because on the evening of the same day he returned for a second tattoo on his forearm.

I dunno... I think the guy collects them, he said it was from countries he been to or people that offered the bills to him. It does give a nice touch, tho ;)

He looks like Russel Crowe! Wow this photo is great, usually i think a photo looks better in colour, but in this case, the black and white makes it. And also, catching him looking in the mirror at the right time like that must have been so hard! excellent work!

Oh thorough critique! :D I choose it to be in black and white because I wanted to hide the noise lol And mostly because it a mode that looks nice in photojournalism, what I wanted to go for. Thanks Catherine!
