I love to experiment with imagery and creating an image that hints at spontaneity and creativity - a blur of a picture. Recently that has been in the form of photography. As I can't well do this when I'm doing tests for agencies, or collaborating with artsy friends, or even on the job completing an actual paid gig, I find I have to experiment with my self portrait. I love to play with light, to manipulate it as I photograph myself goofing around. I try to avoid doing a lot of post production work in general, but especially on myself. It feels like a lie...
Self portraits can be tricky. After fixing the camera right and making sure its in the setting you want for the sort of image you're after, you forget to work the angles of your own face! Or at least I do. What looks good on professional models does not necessarily suit me. Then again, I wouldn't exactly ask paid professionals to turn completely away from the camera, showing only back, shoulder, cheek and frizz, for the sake of capturing a 'moment' - rather than a nice, crisp, solid shot. More of this style coming soon, in case my whizzing around switching lights on and off in my house doesn't do it for you :)
In the meantime, make-do with this: A Blur.
