spacecadet Posted January 22 Share Posted January 22 From some posts elsewhere I thought this might make a thread. My first was taken at the camera shop on wipe-down Polaroid. How innocent-looking at 16. My photography had started by then but I wouldn't have been capable of doing it myself. In between, a student union ID photo in borderline greaser garb. Subsequently they're all home-grown. For the next one I used a window-light pic I'd taken four years (!) before for a press piece. Next, studio flash, but still b/w, waistcoat and tie, and still on film of course, taken for a campaign leaflet. The last one and we're onto digital, plain backgrounds and the rest, but you were still allowed b/w, so I converted it. Paper prints still required, so cropped (probably in Picasa) and sent to a printing company. In between, a Chinese visa, same. Currently, it's compulsory colour, online submission and automatic cropping and I have to say it does look a little better. Especially as it's still maroon. Still wearing a tie, pink. Some of OH's have been mine if there was time, some not, but I can tell, of course, and mine are better, naturally. 😉 And I still have a paper driving licence.
