200. Self portrait

200. Self portrait


Ok, for this 200th post I thought I'd put a face on the guy behind the camera. Usually I'd rather stay away from the line of fire, but I did this photo for a challenge with a friend not so long ago, and thought it would be a suitable thing to post for this occasion.

Setup: Tripod mounted Canon 40D with 24-70mm f/2.8 L lens. Remote triggered flash (cheap triggers bought from eBay) above with cardboard snout. I usted the EOS utility to trigger the camera with a mouse and let Lightroom auto import the results so that I could view them on my monitor without having to get up from the chair where I was seated.

Idea: I wanted to do some low key and used a black suit jacket and tie to create a natural black border around the lit areas while also supporting the serious / angry look I were going for.
