This afternoon I spontaneously decided to go shoot since it was so warm out. I had no ideas really, I just knew roughly where I was going. I wasn’t even planning on shooting a self-portrait, and then this happened. It took more than a few hours to edit (by far the most I have spent editing in ages) and is around 6 images combined.
It also sparked an idea for a new series that I am pretty excited about. Hopefully I will be able to get shooting for that soonish.
I had the itch for a self-portrait for quite a few weeks, and finally had a chance yesterday to do one that I had sketched out a while ago.
For the most part it turned out how I had wanted it to. I do wish that there was more glass on my face, but it just kept sliding off. I plan on doing a sequel of sorts, and have figured out a way that should get the glass to stick, so hopefully I can get to that in the near future.
I am really drawn to the one with the eyes closed, but have heard from many that the prefer the opposite. So I am curious to hear, which one do you here on my blog prefer? I would love to hear some feedback!
Goodness this burned my eyes. I am still finding clumps of mascara on my eyeball, hours later.
Sometimes, I feel like the watermark just doesn’t belong on certain images. I left it off this one on purpose because I felt like it destroyed the clean simplicity, and was just a distraction from the emotion I was trying to convey.
Well the title is mostly because I was stuck on a title, but it also kind of fits the picture I think.
This is a picture that is for my independent studio project. It will be a series of self portraits. They are technically a progression so I guess this shouldn’t be posted until the end, but oh well. I really liked a few from this shoot so I will post a few more. I just wish the strobe would have worked the entire time.
