More self portraits…

In this days of social isolation, what do you do? Me, I get creative. With flash, of course. And apart from cropping and, in some cases, adjustment to vibrance and presence, it’s straight out of camera (“SOOC”) – it’s what you do once you know flash. Which, incidentally, I teach.

Here’s the most recent days:

Day 14: Rainy Day Outside
Day 15: By the car. remember cars?
Day 16: Contemplating.
Day 17: Cooking. Again.
Day 18: Pensive
Day 19: Juggling Watches
Day 20: Playing with Toys
Day 21: Attitude?
Day 22: Maintaining Standards. One flash with 1/4″ grid.
Day 23: In The Spotlight. Left, flash with Honlphoto 1/4″ grid and Mikkel Blue gel. Right, flash with Honlphoto 1/8″ grid and Egg Yolk Yellow gel.

I hope you, too, dear reader, are keeping busy with something creative. Regardless of what our governments regards as “essential”, we cannot live on bread alone.

And above all, stay well.

Day 13

The rest of my self portraits are posted elsewhere, but here’s day 13. At some stage I will re-post all of them here. Day 13 is “making do”. Sleep, shower, shave, etc, TV, sleep, repeat. What else is there to do?

Covid day 13: Making Do.

For today’s portrait I use a prop. And the camera is set to f/16, 100 IUSO, 1/250 sec. The light is a single speedlight fitted with a Honl Photo 1/4″ speed grid. Took about 30 seconds to do this portrait. Now the rest of the day…
