    A couple self-portraits (with an awesome lens)

    I received a new tripod today--not a great one, but it'll serve its purpose. And so what else could I do but frame and pre-focus my lens, set the timer and hope that I was in focus plane.

    Edit: these are with a Nikon 200mm f/2 AI-S...which last month went from being borrowed from a friend to being slowly paid for over a few months to a friend.

    Heh. At least for a few out of a couple dozen anyway.

    Sometimes it feels like the most important part of photography is to never share your rejects... ;)

    I read somewhere that the main difference between a good and a bad photographer is the pictures that they choose to show you. :p

    One of the few people I've seen who gets away with showing their rejected photographs is Sam Abell in his book The Life of a Photograph.
