An ancient Latin saying. Obviously ancient if it’s Latin.
And a self portrait, obviously not ancient, unless perhaps my age puts me into that category.
Oh vanity of vanities, all is vanity. Manual focus on an object that is sitting where I will be. Then use the timer shutter release. Camera on a tripod. or on a table.
So is this a “vanity” photo?
No, it is more of a storytelling photo. Photos can be more interesting if they imply that there is clearly a story behind the photo, and it is not a straightforward one like “happy clown”.
If you are on my course: much more coming. If not: get the books, come back here, and keep reading. Enjoy!
