It was a rainy day and I decided it was about time I did a self portrait. It had been some time since I properly sat down and created a scene. As any photographer knows, setting up a tripod and getting the composition, focus, lighting and mood right when you're the subject is quite difficult. Anyone thinking I got this on the first take is dead wrong! Art takes a lot of patience and oftentimes, a lot of trial and error. I'm super happy with the way this turned out. I think it's my favourite self portrait I've done.
I joined 500px yesterday after being very inspired by some of the incredible content on there and I wanted to join the amazing community. I didn't imagine that my self portrait would get selected for Editor's Choice! Recognition for your work is extremely satisfying. This will definitely be the first of my new series of self portraits. Watch this space!
I'm the founder of Tinska and aside from photography, I spend my time practicing yoga, reading anything from Beat poetry to Science Fiction and running around after a cheeky puppy.
