CLASS // Favorite self portrait of you and another artist
SELF PORTRAIT // OPEN
Grasp - September 2015
What were the main challenges in making this image?
I was battling the light, literally chasing it as the clouds came in and out of the sunlight through the blinds in this room. This is in one of my favorite rooms because the windows act as a huge softbox that bathes in the room in a soft and even light.
Did you have any technical difficulties?
After doing a small variety of self portraits over the year, I have the general set up figured out. I continue to struggle with the best way to get overhead shots with the tripod I have - I often need to remove a leg or two in post.
Would you do anything differently next time?
I'm actually really happy with what I accomplished here. One of those times where the first couple shots really captures what you want and the ones later on just don't do it for you. If I can manage to set up the frame farther away, I'd like to incorporate more of my face in the future.
