Day 216 – August 3, 2012

Self-portrait with flash.

I’ve been messing around with my external flash lately.  I’m not a very big flash user.  So far I’ve only used it at weddings.  But I know I need to get better at using it.  Who’s got flash tips for me?

    Lovely faceless self portrait.

  2. Flash tip#1
    wear runnning will have to get out fast.
    Tatoos ..cover them. They could be used to identify you.
    don’t use your best rain coat…….

    Oh wait. Not that kind of flashing

    never mind

  3. I like what Chris said; so funny. I like your self-portrait, too. If your external flash is a bounce, there are lots of ways to use it. I wouldn’t know where to start except just practice, practice, practice.

  4. Chris beat me to it, love the self portrait but why block out your face with a flash? Yet show blue finger nails, no engagement or wedding ring, blonde hair, gonna find you a husband…

    • I’ve always hated self-portraits, I always look awkward. I always joke and say that’s why I’m a photographer, because I only like being behind the camera. So I’ve been trying to master the faceless self-portrait. And no need to find me a husband, since I’ve had one for 5 years. You can see my wedding and engagement rings, they are on the hand under the lens.

  5. Flash tips – get it off the camera if at all possible. Otherwise bounce it of ceilings or walls. Get a diffuser. :)

  6. I don’t have an external flash myself, so no tips from me, but the shot is cool. :-)

  7. Cool photo ooh and nice nail varnish :-)
