Vote! Self Portrait

Which self portrait should go on my portfolio cover for my application to photo school? Nr 1, nr 2 or should I make a new, more professional looking one? HELP!

Muah darling

They are both beautiful, but for an application I would make a more professional one...maybe when you're holding your camera in front of you and your face can be seen.

If not I would take the 1st one! Love it.

I love the first one<3. But, for an app, I agree with Sveni when she said to take a more professional photo where you can see your face! good luck!

I like them both, prob no 1 better as i'm not keen on the mirror glare..
For an app tho i think i would expect to see your face more. Funny i was experimenting in a mirroe yesterday trying to hold the camera at an angle so you could see me in the mirror but not the camera, i'm sure i've seen that done.. i'm sure you'll get in your pics are great :)

These are both really fun but I would probably go for a more professional looking one. Good luck!

Difficult choice I might say. The first one is a typical "photographer" pose but still sort of on point as that is what you want to be. However, the second one is more original but odd at the same time. I say that because the uniqueness comes in the fact that the camera is sort of your mouth as in "you speak, consume, and communicate through the lense". But at the same time that flash is a bit odd, and sort of put a lot of focus on the big glasses. Hmmm I think I will actually vote for the second pic even if there is a mirror glare I think that it is more unique and no common. Especially if you feel the same about the camera position being as part of your figurative mouth, I think that is a stand out shot!

Best,

Efrutik

All your photographs are lovely! I had to comment here though and say please use n. two because the first photo image is so over done and expected. You do want to be professional but in the art world I think it is also good to stand out and to be a bit original. The second one is so much more interesting and the fact that the flash erased your mouth gives it so much more meaning and the ability for interpretations. It is a really great image. Good luck!
