High key portrait [Explored!]

Part of the 52 weeks of 2015


Week No: 36

Theme: High-key portrait

Category: Portrait


I seem to have taken more self-portraits in the last 9months due to the 52 weeks challenges. But it's not because I'm vain or love being in front of the camera, it's more a case of not having other models available at the time when I need to do the shot (although I have had my wife and kids as models a couple of times).


Anyway, here's my shot for the week, a simple white sheet as a back drop with two lights on it, then a single flash in a brolly to camera right. to light me.

I've realised through doing all these self-portraits, I'm not very good at expressions or posing, but after about 30-40 shots, I was quite pleased with this one.


Explored on 5th Sept 2015 @ no 303.

Thanks for all the comments, faves and views.
