I completely forgot to take a picture today until well after dark. We had just finished adding on this front patio to my parents’ house, and so I thought it might make for a nice photograph. I didn’t think of adding myself in until I started shooting.
I haven’t done a self-portrait in such a long time. Mostly because I have been lazy and uninspired. Today I finally had an idea I liked, but when I went out to shoot it I realized my hair isn’t long enough for what I had hoped to do. After messing around in photoshop quite a bit though I managed to turn it into something I think works.
I wanted to use the muted window light this afternoon while it was snowing, and ended up really liking the highlighted edges that resulted. Plus I got my hair cut yesterday so I figured it was a good excuse for a self-portrait.
