Let me explain.
I’m the new kid on the block in a local photo group that is hosted on Facebook. One of the administrators of the group wanted someone, other than another admin, to upload a large file to the November photo album. Each month they have a theme, and a contest for the best image posted, as determined by those members who vote. This month’s theme is “Self Portrait.” Apparently there was a problem with large files not posting to the album in October, hence the request to test.
I had a few minutes to spare and picked up the challenge. Having my ultra-wide-angle lens still on my camera, I thought, ‘What the heck, I’ll take an extreme close-up” and proceeded to do just that. The lens is just about 6 inches from my nose. My proboscis (nose) is featured prominently here.
This isn’t a typical portrait. I grabbed the lens at hand and went with it, knowing that the image result would look a bit odd.
I swizzled the image a bit in Lightroom and here you are. I’m pleased with the result. It suits me for the purpose intended, a test.
As for the test, I couldn’t upload to the album. Facebook has again done something that broke a feature that was working just fine for all. Now whatever they ‘improved’ has broken something els that was functioning.
Life in the fast lane.
