I made a few notes in my shot book and prepped for a couple of shots. I use a shot book because my memory is ..... shot after some fancy cancery treatment stuff in 2013. In my shot book I write up a props list and draw very poor stick figures and lighting diagrams. But it works for me and that is all that counts! I listed the props, wigs, gloves, glasses, hats and camera gear! It was surprisingly easy to list the ideas. They just kept flowing onto the page!
I have sufficient gear for my needs, in fact I sometimes tag my instagram shots #allthegearandnoidea ! Not strictly true, I don't have all the gear and sometimes I have a bit of an idea!! Notwithstanding I thought taking some selfies would fill some of my free isolation time.
I'm still working my 9 to 5 grind with my long term employer in emergency services/justice, but weekends were lockdown. So free time was plentiful and I had canned all my studio bookings. I'm not mad keen on a selfie and am far from model material, but, what the hell! I thought I'd give it a go! The 15 or so entries before my first one went up seemed to be outside the rules of the comp! Lots of selfies, just no imaging equipment in the shots.
So into the studio I went. Set up my camera on a tripod and started clicking! If you know me then you know I have no photoshop skills. So these are simply cropped square in Lightroom and then uploaded.
So which pic won?
The last one. The 4 shot fighting with the reflector got the prize.
What do you think? Is it your favourite? Did Kayell get it right?
I have to admit it wasn't my favourite..... but it sure is now!
