Photo of the Week Blog: Self-Portrait Experimentation
About This Photo
Playing around with different lighting is so much fun! I’m over at my mom’s a lot, and she just got this new disco-type light that I love. I took this photo in a dark room and put the light right next to my face. The magic about it was that since the light was moving, I got a different image every time I clicked the shutter - that’s the only time that digital photography gives me that same fluttery feeling as film - when I have no idea what I’m going to get. I love how the light here happened to catch nicely on my eye and lips. It’s like it painted my face. Moral of the story: next time you’re around interesting light, get your camera out!
