Self

Thanks, G.

If you haven’t read the last blog, go read it now.

Meet G.

See how cool she is.

Then come back to this one.

I’ll wait.

You see, G inspired me. She posted a few self portraits on her Instagram and I was taken aback by them. The lighting, the poses, the emotion created. It was all there and it all seemed so easy. I asked her for tips and she gave them to me:

“Keep your camera an arms length away.” “Use auto-focus sometimes, manual focus other times.” “Use a wide lens.” “Set yourself against a solid background.”

So, here I go.

Grab my camera.

Grab my tripod.

Set it up in a corner of my room by a plain wall.

Turn off all the lights and used only my desk lamp and a photography light to set the scene.

Here are the results.
