Week 1: Self PortraitWeek 1: Self Portrait

          HAPPY 2016! As we enter the new year, 52 Frames once again required photographers to put themselves before the lens. Week 1 had us dig deep to try and display our personalities, personal style and faces in a way that made us feel comfortable or vulnerable. I had no idea what to do for my submission, except that it needed to be different from last year's. I did some research on some notable self portraits and ultimately decided to be playful with mine. 

          I rubbed some tempura paint on my face, upper body and hair. I sat in front of a white backdrop with a soft box to my right. I got my clicker and began posing. After 100 odd shots, I decided to call it a night. I browsed my captures and edited six. Thereafter, I tried to decide on which image popped the most. Finally, I settled on the above image because it captured the magic of eyes piercing through the photo. Here's a before and after.
