Welcome to day 12 of a photo a day for 365 days! Today I am going to share a self portrait.
Sometimes I see something or have an idea but I do not have anyone to model for me. In this case I had just got this mandala blanket, hung it on the wall and was so in love I had to take a photo with it. So I brushed my hair grabbed my tripod and did a shoot! I am not going to lie, doing this feels a bit weird but when I have an idea I get impatient and want to do it now! So I set the timer sat in front if it and started shooting. This is what I got!
The room light was low so I had my aperture pretty open at f2.2, that was as open as I could go because if I moved forward or backwards even a little I ended up being blurry. To make sure I was sitting in the right spot I put a pillow where I was suppose to sit, I then focused on the pillow and sat on the pillow that I knew was in focus. It was a lot of trial and error but was fun making it, I also finally got an image with that lovely blanket design in the background! I used my Canon 6D, my 50mm lens, shutter was at 1/1000 and my camera was on a tripod set on a 10 second timer. I edited this image in Lightroom.
