Day 27. August 4, 2010. Self-portrait! I wanted to play with lighting, but didn't want to subject a fellow member of the house to my torture, so I just used myself. I wanted to have a noticeable light fall-off across my face that faded into darkness, so I did some test shots on a chair, and moved my light as far out as I could with my short lighting cable. Having to prefocus manually, then walk into the frame, forced me to stop down quite a bit to keep everything sharp. After a while, I was liking the setup, but the shots kept coming out looking too artificial (and my poses looked too ridiculous), so I attached an orange gel filter to warmify everything.
50mm f/1.4 lens. f/8.0. 1/100. ISO 400.
580EX II ~10ft front-left of camera at 1/16 straight-on with orange filter.
