Self Portrait

With selfies being so prevalent these days the concept of taking a self portrait is perhaps somewhat tainted.

However the process of taking a considered photo of yourself is one that allows the opportunity to test and experience not only poses but also the emotion of being the subject, something a bit foreign when you are the person normally holding the camera!

So it was in this instance. I am luck enough that my lounge has two large windows allowing for good lighting without any extra effort. So it was that I could experiment with several poses and expressions.

Finally I came up with this, perhaps rather bland expression – perhaps I was to involved in the technical aspects than thinking about a favourite time or place!
