I find this self portrait by an unknown artist a compelling and interesting image. The way the man seems hidden and is lit only partly with natural lighting convinces the viewer there is some kind of story behind the image that will get the view thinking.


Photo shoot Plan • I will shoot my photos with a white and black backdrop.

For some shots I will use the continuous LED panel for lighting in some pictures to add a tungsten and cold effect to the images. I will also use a 3 point flash kit for more lit images, 2 flash head to light the front of me and one for the back, this will be all triggered by the on camera flash. I will mainly use a tripod with a self timer, or in some circumstances i will use a trigger release.

Evaluation Taking photos of yourself is a difficult task as a person can be so self concious of what they look like in a photo, and come away from the artistic side, this was a small problem I overcome but was easily resolved. I feel my photographs are of high quality and meet my intentions of creating a story behind each image. It was hard to show an initial photograph and display with an edited one in this task, with photos of myself it was hard to create a range of different images, I would play with an image until i get a spark into creating something better. If I was to undergo this project again, I would plan it more and think of more ways to explore the theme to create a wider range of images. I felt I couldn't put any images in my work that are too plain as this would reflect on the other images as there is only one character/
