I tried my hands at a self-portrait for April 2. I sat my camera on a window sill as I faced the light coming in. Then I edited by playing with contrast and focus. My face is a bit flush. I just finished an 8 mile morning run before the shoot.
Then I took a self-portrait in black and white. I really am liking the black and white photography lately. All I really did on this photo in terms of post editing was increase the shadowing to bring uniformity to the background and make my face stand out more. (Not sure why I closed my eyes in so many photos. It just felt “right” as I shot them).
This is the most natural of the portraits.
