These were from the same serie as the other self portrait. I thought the matched nicely together. Therefore I’m showing them here.
The fun part about making self portraits is that you do not see the result before you click the the button. You have to check afterwards, so it is bit of a guess at the moment when you take the shot. So I take a lot of pictures and wait untill I see them on the computer. By doing so I am not affected by the result in an early stage what gives me more freedom in the faces that I make. I know that is something between my ears, but for me it works.
Ask an ‘assistant’ to help when you do not want to use AF (auto focus). Make some test shots to check the light. And in my humble opinion the most important part is the use of a shutter release cable, or a remote shutter release. If you have to wait everytime on the self-timer on you camera, you will get frustrated. And it is harder to get the right moment….
