It's my birthday today so I thought I'd share a collection of self portraits I took last year. Some ask why I do self portraits and the answers are many.
One: I'm always available to model.
Two: I am 100% committed and understanding of the final vision I have for the photograph.
Three: It lets me try new techniques without having to worry about winding up with a bunch of unusable images. I also get more nervous working with others and so I like to at least know what I'm doing mostly. Self portraits let me do a trial first.
Four: They are fun! :-)
As you can see I will use wigs and costuming and sometimes even photoshop to make myself into a character. So most of my self shots are really more self modeled than self portraits but not always.
