Lately I’ve been thinking a lot about self portraits, specifically how I would like to have one for my new blog design’s ABOUT page. I’m not usually one to put myself in front of the camera, so the whole experience is a bit wonky and uncomfortable.
Vanessa Correia does a splendid job at doing this and seems to be able to capture just enough emotion without being toooo “fine artsy”, if you know what I mean. I love the simple backgrounds, the moodiness and the natural unposed/yet posed positioning. I think I’ll be using her images as inspiration when I finally do step in front of the camera.
What do you guys think? Like her perspective? Have you taken portraits of yourself before…any tips?
