This is a before and after self portrait based on froggieslightroom tutorial as seen here. His new tutorial YouTube page is pretty good. The first one is out of the camera, the second the default Lightroom B&W, and the third is the “gritty” edit.
Overall I’m happy with it. I think I would’ve used a slightly deeper DOF as my nose isn’t quite in focus. I also need a shave. Once I get some flashes I should have an easier time getting one without the glare from the windows in my eyes. I also learned that shooting with glasses is just impossible.
