    To mess around with smoke, I actually went to the garage tonight and bought some cigarettes. I've never held a cigarette, never mind smoked one. The pictures of me attempting to smoke are horrific, so I went for another source of smoke instead (beans).

    Great set mate...lifting up the game each time. The first one's my favourite- would be great to see the setup.
    #2 probably a tad too bright on the hand/forearm perhaps
    Lighten up!

    I've heard that alot actually. The contraindications to prescribing Champix include previous mental health disorders as they can exacerbate them (especially depression). Other than that they are the best bet for people wanting to quit, much better than NRT

    I got a cheap laptop from trademe and have been setting it up,one of the first sites i hooked up on was here..well Paul very much like your studio shots..but what i noticed on the dodgy screen of cheap laptop is that on your first image that your face is different as in from one side to the other , had a look on my good monitor..which set me thinking it is the light..just a tad to far back on your left..your smoke hat one is not like that nearly as much. Just my basic input so as always a pinch of salt :P

    Yes , the shadow side makes your eye look smaller and your lips look different from the side that is not so shadowed.

    Thames is a bit more built up than I thought!?!

    It's also built on a slope & the tidal flow at those 3 degrees is fairly extreme!

    I like the self shots, the square is good, I like your B/W conversions.

    Kill the kicker catchlights in the eyes though, shows there was more than one light and makes the eyes look wet.

    I took the liberty...

    I always think of you and your wet eyes when I process a shot with more than one catch light Joss
    I'm not sure what you mean by 'the square is good'

    I'm honored to be remembered for a classic comment!


    square format I meant, 6x6 film was great and you didn't need to tilt the camera and mess up the overhead fill flash.

    Dam it boy put some line feeds between images and number then or title them.

    I hate some I really love others, and since I am not a mono fan that says something

    Give an Artist a box of different sized colour blocks and he will create an art work; give me the same box and I will sort it by colour and then size :)
