Self Portrait 6


This is not so much a self portrait (Evan took this shot) but more of my own work sampling different photo filters and sharpening masks to create a mood in an image. I love the uneven light in this shot.
I'm hoping to start shooting other models soon, will be so much more satisfying to shoot pictures of someone else. It probably sounds a little absurd coming from a girl who takes alot of pictures of herself for various endeavors but I really do get sick of my own look. My face has been overexposed to myself as a photographer! Ridiculous, yes.

Love it! Actually, I think the uneven lighting adds to the photo rather than detract from it. It creates some interesting textures in the background, but also keeps your face in a nice light. (Usually with select natural lighting, the face's shadow is so dark you can barely see it!)

Best of luck with the other photographic endeavours! I completely empathize. I'm a [sort-of...] model, but I can usually be found with a camera in my hand shooting someone else! I've thoroughly enjoyed your photography so far - especially of other models from behind-the-scenes of shows you've been in. You were actually the inspiration for me looking for a new DSLR camera! (Though I'm afraid I'm a Canon girl. :) )

I know exactly how you feel! I wish my little sis were available more often for photo shoots! I have so many ideas to shoot but we can never quite get our schedules to cooperate!

Looks like the sun in Sydney is gorgeous! Have a fab weekend. XX
