I’ve been wanting to take portraits at the new place but I haven’t had time and gumption to ask anyone to give me the time to hang out while I worked out how to light in the space and with the gear mix.

The good thing is that when I shoot self-portraits, I don’t have to think so much about making sure the other person is happy with the shot. I’m not going to lie and say that there’s not vanity in there, but when I art direct photo shoots commercially I don’t take the subject’s views about themselves too much into account. When I shoot friends, then I do worry, and that works against what’s best for the shot.

Me? I don’t mind looking like a pompous douchebag. I just won’t smile
