Karen (September Self Portrait B&W)

Karen  Betts

Harleston, United Kingdom

Artist's Description

Okay my next portrait in my self growth and challenge to do a monthly portrait of myself.

This is a little different this is the 1st one I have taken with my remote control, last time I tried this it was with a wooden spoon

I decided at 8am this Saturday morning to take the bull by the Horns and have a go, so before I changed my mind out came my tripod, camera and remote control. I thought do I Glam up ummm NO do something with my hair ummm NO this is me Saturday morning up and ready to get to work in the house and get jobs done.

Next I had to decide how and where, concervatory had light coming through so went in there and off I went. Not as easy as it looks.

1. You cut half your head off.

2. By the time you set the camera off its clicked and you are looking most odd. I fixed that set the timer as well with the remote sign on the camera

3. Is you head in shot, are you poised right what about the light.

I did a few and had fun I can see I would like to try more once I really figure out what im doing, and how the best way it is to look relaxed why trying to figure out which angle to point the remote control to set the camera off and not look surprised, tense or just Gormless in the images.
