A business selfie

I am in the process of updating some profile information. It occurred to me that I needed a portrait that is more office-appropriate to put up.


What a perfect opportunity to execute another selfie.


Once the scene was prepared (camera, subject, and light placement) the camera was connected to a large flatscreen TV via HDMI. Since I was doing this on my own, the TV made initial composition via LiveView, and then image reviews, a much faster process than I could ever hope for out of a tethered shoot.
