As I said in my last post, I feel inhibited about photographing people, especially when it comes to self-portraits. Just the thought of sitting for the camera is as difficult for me as getting up to speak in a room full of people who don’t know me.
So, encouraged (or egged-on in the nicest possible way) by David Bennett, I finally started to experiment and here’s the first of what I hope will be a few self-portraits taken during this coming year. (Gads! I even feel embarrassed just posting this! LOL)
And, no, I tend not to be the smiley sort. :)
This was taken using the S-100′s “Toy Camera” effect, which darkens the corners of the image and has 3 color tones (warm, standard, cool), and a little bit of fudging with PSE8′s Levels.
OK, David, your turn.
