By far the best likeness of me and by far my fav self-portrait.
Taken with a Franka Rolfix - long exposure -with Kentmere art Document paper as neg then enlarged onto Forte paper.

Who is that in the image behind you ?

Wonderful pics everyone, great thread

(Wait for it...I've been building up to this one*)

I particularly liked the shots from Windy and Miller.

Ed - I think you should get your coat

(Actually, I started using 'Windy' on a cycle forum as 'Windy Biker' and my avatar was Windy Miller on his trike. I have been considering changing my user name to 'Ian' as the vibe here is far more pleasant than  that found on cycling forums.)

Jojonas, nice psychedelic shot
Andrea, this is a scary shot in a very good way ;) , love it...
DS I like your photobooth shot, I never thought about taking a self portrait in one of those, maybe it's too late now...

Here's another from 2 years ago,  less stubble and err... less wrinkle...

I knew if I attempted to shoot something on film it would be several years before it appeared on this thread, so I broke out the Polaroid. This is me as of about 45 minutes ago.

Sapata - I love it! (Bathrooms are good for large format pola-selfies)

DS - such an entertaining photobooth capture!  ;))

No art here, just a happy-snap (note my Phil / Ian-style smile). Konica Wai-Wai reloaded with XP2 Super - 17mm and a mirror on the front makes self-portraits pretty easy, even while driving I-95! A great thread! See ya! Skj.

Beck

Are you sure this is a self portrait and not a picture of your twin?

The only self portrait I have taken recently was for the collaboration mention previously.  
However seems like I should go and waste some film and make some.

Love this thread! There are some amazingly beautiful/thoughtful/creative images in here!

Ed - I don't know why but that photo of you makes me want to give you a hug! Its lovely!

Andrea - I honestly could not love your portrait more! Its so scary (in the hauntingly mysterious sense of the word, not the 'I am going to eat your brains/slash your guts open' kind of way). I looked at it for a really long time.

Its only in the last few years that I have actually started to enjoy doing the odd self portrait. I think there is something kind of liberating about it (like Phil said) now. Maybe its something to do with coming out of awkward teenage years too, and helping to finding out what kind of person I actually consider myself to be in the real world :)

This one was more just about playing with the film (polaroid fade to black). I needed to shoot something close to hand to test it out and my face happened to be the nearest thing!

It's not that amazing. Plus that's my crappy watercolour paper... ran out of already cut-down to size Arches Platine which is nice and smooth :( Need to get out the big paper cutter and spend a few hours cutting down the next batch of paper.

plus that's a really unflattering angle for my double chin. eesh. And my chest  :-[

Heather
I think its great too, I think its the feeling of tranquility in the eyes, you just look relaxed which considering it can't of been comfy on those apples :D
I also like the textured paper....
As for bad angles that's a little too much self-depreciation, I wish I was braver, I think there are only 3-4 images existing of me since I was 14 (when I took up photography)
I'd like to try another, like the one Bill Brandt in a mirror without seeing the camera.

Come on Heather... the picture is really good.
I think you underestimate it a lot. It makes you look a little chubbier... so what? I still find the pose quite nice. And no matter what you think about it, it won't change the fact we all think you're sweet and imaginative (and pretty gutsy to do cyanos!)

OK, a quick shot taken yesterday. I decided to frame myself for a shot. Only thing is I had to use my favorite voice activated remote triggering device... which also goes by the name "mom" :)
Polaroid 600... first pack I tried was totally cooked so I had to take another one out of the fridge.

Fantastic new editions!

Heather, I dig the shot and I love the angle. You look relaxed but deep in thought, like you're mulling over the meaning of life or something. Not sure that would have come across from another angle.

Francois, you positively GLOW in that shot. Did you have to say MOM for the remote to work? Just curious.

Well... she was waiting for my cue...
The cue was more like explaining how the camera works since the flash only charges then the button is pressed half way :)

Francois, your photo looks like something Mario Testino would knock up in one of his less annoying moments. I'm not a fan of his work, but I love the irony of your snap and the fact that you fooled Mojave with your comment. You almost had me going for a second, but then I worked it out.

Yep, that's me being ecstatic.

I think by this eighth or ninth attempt I was getting bored. At least I was actually in the shot (which I wasn't for a couple of the earlier attempts).

I wasn't thinking of any others work when I shot it... I just took an old frame I had found that was lying in the garden shed, dusted it off and used it... as for the mesmerizing technical talk and strange device naming, it's always been a geek hobby of mine :)

and can i just add my praise to peter's.
peter, i'm curious, would you say that's as true a self portrait as you could have of yourself...in that situation with that expression (which is perfect)...is it one your family would look at and nod and say, 'yes, that's him alright'? or can you think of another situation that would feel more right?

Yes, that's definitely me. But I have to say, I've never actually sat in my shed before. That was just an idea I had.
