This is perhaps one of my best portraits. Or, at least, I like it very much. I've taken a lot of selfies with my iPhone over the years, most of which suck because the lighting is off, with shadows showing all manner of masculinity. Sometimes, the lighting is exactly right, and this is one of those instances. I can't really tell when taking photos how they will come out as my eyesight is not great when trying to see things up close and I can't be bothered to grab my reading glasses during the process. I think by holding the phone to take a selfie, there's just enough motion to blur things a little, making the result more appealing than otherwise would be the case. Put another way, cameras in mobile devices are forgiving when it comes to selfies. I wondered about this because I've taken self portraits with my iPhone on a fixed platform, with the result being very clear (perhaps mortifyingly so).

I'm a guy. I like women. I like the company of women, I'm married to a woman, and I like to dress up like a woman now and then because it's fun. For me, crossdressing is an art form and an excuse to meet like-minded folks, not the expression of gender dysphoria. I should note that my photos are not doctored up with apps or significantly modified using Photoshop, though I do adjust color, contrast, and that sort of thing. It is important to me that my photos are genuine, with wrinkles, pores, and all. If they aren't genuine, I'm fooling myself and others. I take this art form pretty seriously, so if you don't have much of a profile, no photos, or your photos are obviously fake or heavily photoshopped, I will probably not respond to a friend request. I'm not here to indulge sexual fantasies, talk about fetishes, or discuss what sort of intimates I wear to work (I don't). My hope is to find people who are interested in discussing "The Craft," or the art of crossdressing. I'm also keen to ponder the nature of sexuality and gender, fashion, and makeup techniques. However, I always try to respond to correspondence - we should all help each other out. I enjoy engaging with anyone, frankly!

To paraphrase an old four seasons lyrics…those eyes are pretty as a midsummers morn…
This self portrait engenders the essence of your femininity.

So great to see you back, Alexandra – you have been missed. I agree this is one of your best portraits – makeup, hair and oh those gorgeous eyes. I totally know what you mean about getting the lighting exactly right. About 1 in 50 photos that I take with my iPhone is a “winner.” BTW, I assume you’re aware that the selfie camera has lower resolution than the main one? Either way, phones nowadays take some high quality photos – especially when the subject is as beautiful as you.
