365 Project | 23

The 365 project. A year of Archibald Photography in photographs.

January 23. Self portrait with kids photobomb.

Self portraits can be a lot of fun if you concentrate on everything in the entire image. Sometimes you need a figure in a scene to give it visual interest. If no-one else is willing or available, why not use yourself? It doesn’t have to be seen as narcissistic. When you really love taking photographs, sometimes you just have to press that button…even if you are the only subject around. Anyway…I wanted to photograph the shadows from our Moroccan lamp and was looking for an interesting and less direct way to do it…

This was just a bit of fun…now check out these awesome self portraits by a true master (mistress…?)… Vivian Maier.
