365.12 - First Self Portrait

    Prev Next

    Day 12.

    This looks more like a mug shot! I've been wanting to try a self-portrait for a while. This was the best I could come up with - hopefully I'll figure something more creative in the future.

    This was also my first experiment with off-camera flash. I'm sitting in front of a window, with camera on window ledge. SB-600 was immediately next to the camera

      Just a suggestion, but head on isn't usually the best place to source your light. Hopefully you've already got some ambient light from the window anyway, so try moving your flash into different positions. Selfies can be hard at first but at least you always have a willing model.
