Urgh self portraits, I find these very hard to take.
I’ll try not to make this yet another moaning about the English weather post but it’s fair to say gray and drizzle sums up our climate at the moment. Now that makes photography difficult but not impossible so I thought I would take the opportunity to practice trying to make this dull lighting look a little more interesting by bringing some shadows into my photos. Trouble is my favourite model is now a school boy and waiting until he comes home would mean all the light has gone. So say hello to the self portrait. Well I learnt loads by taking these so I do recommend you try it but you might want to find a better model as my one was very grumpy!
I also took these photos for my Project 52 photo a week the theme of “Book Title”, can you guess what book I went with? Of course it’s Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier which is the very book I was named after. Well I think it was more Laurence Olivier in the 1940′s Hitchcock film that inspired my Mother so I have converted my photos to monochrome in honour of that.
