New Look/Self Portrait

I changed the look of my blog to more closely match my website because I now have it set up to navigate to here from my website.  I think I like the new look!

I spent the morning working on a self portrait.  This was a lot more work than I had anticipated for several reasons.  Like most photographers I know, I don’t like to have my picture taken.  I just have never been comfortable in front of the camera. (Probably because of that ugly mug!)  Focusing is difficult as the person I need to focus on is also the one taking the picture (me).  I used a light stand to focus on and after some messing about I finally got focus on my eyes.  Adjusting the lights and finding the right pose just added to the work but in the end I think I got it.  I am much better when working with another person as the subject.
