290/366 sitting in the hallway


Day two of self-portrait week. What a difference the reflector makes, eh? I have to say, I think I prefer the drama of the top photo—without the reflector—but that may be because I'm used to that look. I can definitely see why most people like the reflector (or fill flash or whatever) lighting the entire face.

Which way do you prefer?

I need to remember to check for shadows when positioning the reflector. I gave myself what looks like a black eye. :) It's hard to hold the reflector while taking a picture of yourself! I had all the focus/placement difficulties of self-portraits, plus the challenge of trying to verify reflector lighting in a handheld mirror. Phew.

Top one looks more.. natural? I like it best.

I agree! The other is a little "flashy" looking to me, even though the light wasn't from a flash.

You look so focused and serious. I like both pictures but probably the top one a little more. Dang I wish you would take some pictures of me and my little people. One day maybe...

J'aime assez avec le réflecteur, mais il faut effectivement réussir à bien l'orienter et seul, ce n'est pas simple du tout...
