I've done some self-portraits before, but I'm not often happy about how they turn out because I don't like myself on pictures (or in general). Also I'm not pushing myself enough most of the times and I end up trying to have a decent picture at the last minute, and I can tell you, you can try all you want, sunlight is the best there is for a great portrait.
I chose to take this self in our bedroom which is blue wallpapered. I put on my blue tunic and shot. I knew blue was the right decision from the first shot and since I have blue eyes, I thought I could do something that could bring my eyes to 'pop' a little. Then I had to make the one picture that I'd like enough to put here.
