Secret Revealed by DragonInk7 Secret Revealed by DragonInk7
I called this "Secret Revealed" because if you look closely into my glasses you can see the reflection of my camera and tripod! :giggle: I know I probably "should have" edited that in photoshop but my photography is about being real, not fake. I like to make as little adjustments to things as possible.


Thank you so much to the wonderful :iconsaddragon: for editing this image for me!! He in fact sent me a copy that had the glasses edited for me to show a nature scape but I chose to go with this one! :hug:

great pose, and i admit i like the reality of your poses. i always try my best to keep it as real as i can, too, but have to admit it's fun to see what other things can be created sometimes.

nicely done on both sides of the lens both figuratively and literally :nod: :thumbsup:

Thank you so much!! And thank you for taking the time to comment on so many of my works! It really means a lot to me! :hug:

It is indeed fun to play sometimes. I'm actually playing a little more recently than I ever have because it seems people like really post processed work more than "real" work! It's kind of a shame!

aww to me seeing the reality in a shot is always the best. now what woudl have been cool that still would be "real" would be to have maybe also tried shooting through a large beach poster with a hole in it to shoot through and then you could have had a beach in your glasses, or you could have even had a poster of the planets or stars, or whatever your chose. then again, with you being the photographer and model having the tools of the trade makes it even more personable and more you than anything else could ever be. wonderful work on your part in all you do! :hug:

There is a Group on Livejournal.com called Selfportraits, where this would make a splash, as well.
