A Self Portrait

A Self PortraitI have posted many photos since I started this blog, but I don’t think I’ve ever posted photographs of people. This evening I felt like branching out so I tried taking some self portraits. I started this experiment by doing my makeup so it was clean with a slight smokey eye then dug up my tripod and set up in the backyard. The sun was setting beautifully so I quickly set everything up and caught the last bits of sunlight. At first I wasn’t sure how to angle my face because at some angles the shadows were too long and others just looked off. By the last couple of shots this one was the winner! It turned out better than I thought so I’ll do more experimenting with my self portraits and hopefully gain more skills with portrait photography.
