It’s really starting to feel like Fall today with the temperatures cooling and the sky filled with clouds and occasional showers of rain. And of course I have already caught the first cold of the season.
It’s almost a given that a few weeks after the kids go back to school that I get sick. It’s like the germs are waiting all Summer long, hanging out at the school and just waiting for the kids to return so they can latch on and catch a ride back home. But hey, what doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger right?
So despite not feeling the greatest I took a self portrait tonight. As you can see it’s been awhile since I’ve shaven and that’s not because I’ve been sick, it’s because I’ve been lazy and because I hate shaving.
I tried this image in color but thought it looked much better in black and white. The lighting was very simple with a single speedlight with a Lumiquest softbox III camera left on 1/4 power. Processed in Lightroom 3.
