I got a little excited about taking pictures of myself this week. If I’m going to learn how to photograph people, I am probably the most willing model that I have access to for the time being. So, last night, after I finished the Drama Jocks show, I set myself up a little studio around my desk, built a crappy diffuser out of tissue paper and cardboard, and went to work.
I wasn’t nearly as impressed with myself as I had been with the outdoor shots over the weekend. Maybe I just don’t like the way that I look in photos, or I don’t know how to do lighting, or both, but the shots I took last night didn’t turn out that well. I might be able to massage a couple of them into usefulness, but I was hoping to do a little better than that. I guess I’ll just need to keep working at it.
If you were me, and you wanted to take a picture of yourself, ostensibly “at work,” (not necessarily at your job, but doing stuff) where would you do it? Or, what would you try to photograph yourself “doing”?
