Self-Portrait With Hat

Filed under: Uncategorized — Frank @ 6:00 PM

I would not, in any way, describe myself as a portraitist.

However, some times one needs to get out of one’s comfort zone. Thus, I have volunteered to make portraits at the Antrim Senior Center for Valentine’s Day.

Last week, I bought a lighting set (LED lights, stands, umbrellas, etc.) suitable for portraiture.

This afternoon, with a 33 degree drizzle happening outside, I decided to get some portraiture practice. I set the lights and camera up in the basement and corralled the closest subject… ME!

The last of these photos is modeled after a late nineteenth century ancestral portrait which hung in my in-law’s house. The stern look and the unusual pose always intrigued me.

  1. Hmmm – I’m guessing Joan headed out as soon as she saw the lights come out!

    Like #1 best – try it as a sepia or B&W. Certainly delete #2. And, #3 will be available for your mugshot at the local post office 🙂

    Kudos for trying!
