My assignment for photo class was to do an unusual self portrait. I was pretty happy with the results I figured I would share.

Wow, that's fantastic. I love the clarity of your closed eyes in the balls, especially the one on the right. That one looks like it could be part of a stone statue with the shade of grey it came out with.

very cool picture... made me think to post some that I was messing around with the other day. Except it didn't work when I tried to post them, just ended up with a link. What's the right way to get it to work, since I apparently didn't do that?

What's the best way to pose acrylics? The pictures I see are always beautiful, but when I try it it's always out of focus.

Wow, great photo. It nearly looks like you have a positive and a negative ball.

@dizz: I've found this sometimes helps; putting the camera in the mode with the icon that looks like a fire-flower from mario bros (Macro mode?)

It helps to have 2 people. I set my camera up and posed everything then I held the balls like I wanted them and moved them closer and further until they were in juuuust the right spot focus wise(of course I couldn't see this while doing it myself, which is why you need 2 people). Then I told him to adjust the focus so what was in the balls was sharp...that would probably be harder to do without an SLR camera(kind with exchangeable lenses where you focus yourself) like I used. A point and shoot camera which auto focuses would more than likely focused on my face and made the balls really blurry/out of focus like you are talking about.

I know some more expensive point and shoot digital cameras you can sometimes adjust the focus manually, but I have no idea how to do that because I really don't use them.
