Me Again

I've come to one big conclusion. I'm not very good at concentrating for long periods of time. This is something that my very good friend Skee has been telling me for a while, I've somehow denied it but it's true. As such I realised this yesterday when I was covering a wedding for a friend. I had a great time at the wedding but I struggled to keep going. Wedding photography demands a lot of concentration and one I've not been able to keep up unless inspired by a very good moment.

Another portrait of me, this one was taken by Asiko the day we were messing around in a friends studio.

Dude...I'm the same but unlike you, I've always known it. Being aware of it means that you just have to try to keep concentrating for that little bit longer!

Nice portrait though...however I don't know which side of you this shows? It's definately not the funny/crazy side! wink

For some reason, you like to cover your face with your hands or something...What are you hiding smile I still like this though
Jide Alakija: I think it's not so much I like to cover my face but I want to show my hand in the shot. It's part of me in my portraits.
