Great composition and great use of 3rds.It is a very well balance shot with very good colour, light and composition.It might be a lot stronger in b&W?... but well done (:

Really nice shot, however I agree with the others, this would be a great shot in Black and White and maybe Pop the colour of the lips, well done :)

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in my living room. Being a photographer by hobby, I finding a white background meant improvising and my white brick wall was perfect.
Time
This was just past mid day when the sun was still high in the sky.
Lighting
The photo is 100% natural light at just past mid day with sun light directly onto my face. This was great and allowed for a bright picture with complimentary shadows.
Equipment
Shot with a Nikon d3100 and a sigma lens. I actually didn't use a tripod and shot this holding the camera towards myself.. It took several tries but eventually I got the right shot.
Inspiration
After seeing all of those beautiful women shots I thought I'd give it a try. This is probably one of the first self portraits I've ever taken.
Editing
The photo was originally a lot more of my face, however I played around with cropping and found this the be the best. I love playing with the rule of thirds. It also leaves some mystery when hiding facial features. I also added a very slight tint to it.
In my camera bag
I'm my bag I always have one of my two cameras. My Nikon d3100 or my Sony rx1r. That's pretty much it. I believe good photos capture moments which are as natural as possible.
Feedback
Light light light. Lighting is very important when takening portraits. Having the light direct like this photo gives a natural feel to it. If you're going for something more moody, try having your light source coming from an angle and work with the shadows on the face. If taking a self portrait I highly recommend relaxing your face.. Play with the rules too.. Rule of thirds may look best but maybe centre will look good too, depending on your face and hair type.
