You're actually doing this with a timer? Not bad at all, at least for the larger image. The smaller - with the rose - is simply too low res, too flared, to judge, IMO.

I'd suggest you study the lighting in images you like, and give some thought to how it was achieved. Generally, shadows generate drama - while a softer, more diffuse light is considered more flattering for "glamour" images. Note the strong shadow under your jaw in the second shot, and the shadow along the right side of your face (viewer's left side). These are so dark because you don't have "fill" - any light to lighten the shadows.

Study images here, ask questions, and try to emulate those you wish. I suppose it's possible to do entirely alone, but you'll find it easier, I suspect, to work with an experienced photographer to get images for your portfolio. OTOH, if this is a personal project, take advantage of the photographic skills others here have.

Again, good luck.

I don't understand - are you using a timer and a tripod? Well, if so, I do have a little experience with that -- and I know if can be tough. Try to put something to focus on where you head is going to be. I use a music stand with a magazine on it. Put you camera in manual focus and focus on that. Then move your 'focusing' rig out of the way, compose your shot, set the timer and get in there.

Here is one rig I used to focus a head shot of myself. Note - this one is focused yet.


keep at it
