Self portrait, right eye

Self portrait
Self portrait, right eye

I spent a good chunk of Tuesday practising my portrait lighting. As no-one else was about I used myself as the model. Above is one of the more experimental shots :-)

I shot in the dining room using a flash to light the wall behind me and a window with netting (to my left) as a side light. To get my eye pin sharp I used autofocus plus a whole lot of attempts to get my eye on the focus point (practice seems to help here!). The catch-light is from the on-camera flash running in commander mode on my Nikon.

Maybe I'll post a full face portrait next time, I do have some of those too :-)
