Portrait photography – Me, Myself and I

I like photography as it provides  me a chance to be creative away from a computer screen and out and about in the world. Last Friday I attended a one day photography workshop at the Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff. It was organised by Ffotogallery and the subject was Portrait Photography with an introduction to lighting and exposure settings.

A Portrait Photograph in three parts
The following photo is a self portrait titled ‘Head Body and Legs’. The photo was taken on a timer using a slow shutter speed of 24 seconds. For 8 seconds I stood with a torch and highlighted the outline of my head before jumping to the right to highlight  my torso and finally jumping again to highlight my feet. Whilst not perfect I am happy with the technique and the image created. I called it Me, Myself and I.

Other photographs can be found in my photography page.
