Here's another self portrait. Unlike the previous picture, this one is done over with Lightroom to give it a high key effect.
Actually, after giving it much thought, I don't think I will enjoy making this type of images. It is not true photography (no doubt a subject of personal interpretation). To me this has crossed the line into digital manipulation. As it just takes a few minutes to transform the right image into a reasonably interesting piece of work, would you call this a cheap shot or a cheat shot?
The second picture is how it was originally shot.
