I completely exhausted after a long, very long, working day!

Self Portrait

In preparation for tomorrow’s shoot I took my lights out of the closet for testing. Once tested I had to do something fun with them, a self portrait? I used one light at its lowest power right behind the subject (myself) and the other light was set to give an f/11 at 1/125 s and placed high at the left of the camera. Both were using umbrellas as reflectors, which can be guessed in the portrait.

I think it portrays me with honesty, capturing my preference to hide behind the camera and out of the frame. What do you think?
