Reflections on a year in 365 photographs

Another self portrait.


I hadn’t done a self-portrait in a while.  I’ve seen a few others lately that I liked and I thought I’d try something like them.  This is a single 580 EX II strobe zoomed to 105mm and a 1.5 inch DIY straw grid to narrow the beam down significantly.  I used a white fill board on my left to just barely fill that side of my face and give a hint of definition.  In post processing I applied a high pass contrast to play up the skin textures and deepen the lines.  I’m a guy so I suppose that’s ok.  Then just convert to black and white with a green filter in Photoshop, size, tone and save.  Not bad for 20 minutes’ work.
