A revealing portrait. One thing is for sure: I will never fight you!

Firm, when necessary, but generally easy-going. Am I close?

You hit the nail there Hawgwild

Thats exactly how I am. And I´m always nice against nice people and always backing up weaker people. And I´m very humble and calm.

But the bad guys don´t like me

From the photo you look both mean and playful -- mean-looking on the outer shell but playful on the inside. Not at all what I expected. (In my defense, author Kathryn Schulz ["Being Wrong", 2010] says we're almost always wrong anyway when it comes to making preconceptions of people we haven't met.) Great posing and shot.

Haha! Well, I am a nice guy and this was a playful photo, so you´re right VV

Glad you like it.

Take care/Daniel

Just because I have nothing to do today and also because i'm doing a 365 self-portrait, I'll throw in that this type of picture is skirting the edges of what is a "self-portrait". Portrait yes, self, mmmmmmmmm, I don't want to say. And in your PP you might have cloned out that spot on the wall behind you.

Well, call it what you want. Maybe I should have wrote portrait of myself instead? If you are hung up on the fact that my wife took the shot? Well, that´s correct. I did the settings, gave her the camera and told her to point it at me and push the shutter. Then I did the rest. At least I wrote in the first post that she took it so it shouldn´t matter what to call it.

About the spot! I missed that one. Thanks for pointing out. But this is just a fun and not to serious shot of my self, so I didn´t care to much about the pp. Especially since the shot is a little out of focus as well.

But thanks for the pointers anyway

Best regards/Daniel

Well, my wife did have a Nikon D5000 before. But she sold it. And she used to shot film, so she still have her EOS 30 analog camera.
But as soon as I can afford another house I will give her one. She likes to photograph alot

Best regards/Daniel
