One person, in front of and behind the camera.
One of my goals is to force myself to do more self portrait sessions with the hopes of learning a thing or two differently than i normally would. ♥
I'm starting off simple, learning how to focus my camera on something that is not there (yet), and hoping to go deeper towards the end of this project by having my images tell a story
This is just simply a style I love to shoot and am having a hard time find a local model. My first time using the remote system and focusing when the subject (me) is not in place.
These portraits are a series of a journey / search in the woods, of what is unknown.
I also played around with lens distortions of different types of glass to add effects to some of these. Definitely will be adding this effect to my tool kit ;)
This month I was challenged to take photos for a client indoors on a white background.. something I never do. I am a lover of natural light, bokeh, and the outdoors so all of my shoots are done exactly like that. To challenge myself to expand my horizons I did my March Self portraits indoors on a white background and on a scenic background (can you tell?? let me know in the comments). For the white ones, I played around with weird poses and editing styles so that it was more than a "headshot" type look. Not positive how I feel about these, but hey that's the point of this project :)
