Selfportrait at midnight
This self-portrait was done yesterday at around midnight. I had to submit a brief for an assignment and instead of describing aesthetic, I was forced to do a self-portrait, since my wife already slept. Lights (2250 Ws) were about 20 meters behind, bounced from the wall and in just in front of my face there was a reflector that was bouncing light from the wall onto my face. The hardest was to guess where is the focus. I put a tripod in front of the lens, focused on it and then I stepped there and moved the tripod out of the frame.
The scary look is because I was wondering if it’ll be in focus and if I’ll be in the frame. First fifteen tries were all completely bad, but with this one I totally look like a rock star, isn’t 🙂
Actually the real job is that I will need to portray a rock band.
