This is a fantastic image. The lights and shadows are used well to highlight your body. The partial nudity however is overshadowed, in ...

Digital photography is a hobby of mine. On occasion I work with models, but self portraits provide me with an ever ready model and plenty of time to play with light, shadows, and poses at my own pace.
Most of the work you'll see here is a bit older. I don't shoot as often as I use to.
My work is for sale. Please don't use any of it without permission.

I'm so geeked!  And honored!  My image "The Red Chair" was selected as a Daily Deviation.  I have been on DA for 7 years and this is my first one.
When I checked in this morning I was surprised to see 50 messages waiting.  Not that unusual; I just assumed one of the groups I'm in added a bunch of new images.  What really surprised me was that they were "feedback" message.  It took me several minutes to figure out why I had so much traffic to my page.
Anyways, thank you to all that have been visiting my work and leaving me such great feeback, favoriting my images, and adding me to your watch lists.  I love it!  It's always great to know my work is appreciated.

I'm not sure yet.  More like contemplation.  I've been taking self portraits for a long time now, and on DA I mainly focus on nude self portraits.  I'm...trying to figure out why.  I'd like to convince myself it's about the art, but I have to be honest and admit there's a large portion of it that's about the exhibitionism.
With that said, I'm getting older.  At some point it's no longer the cute dude posting nudes, it becomes the creepy old dude showing people his junk.  And, as I menitioned in one of my journals, I have no control over who views those images and the thought of high-school girls (and guys) viewing my work is weighing on me lately.
I haven't deleted anything.  I'm just stepping back to try to see the world from a new light.  I'm going to be here, watching those internet friends that I've made and just taking some time to figure out what my next move is.
I'm Erik by the way.  We chat quite a bit.  I figured I should officially introduce myself.
