Lost in Thought by redtree

Man: – Self Portrait.
Where – Rape field in Flitwick, UK
I hope you like it.

Canon 5Dmkii, 24-70mm at 70mm, f16, 1/30 sec, ISO 320. Tripod used. No filters Used.
I had rushed out of the door to capture a lovely sunrise. As I was snapping away I thought I could maybe fit in a self portrait.
I have the Bowler Hat, Suit, Umbrella I bought from ebay for £15 in total. My father who is a retired hairdresser cut my hair in a 1940’s style – by request – and the shot was completed with guess work and various poses using a Giga T Pro shutter trigger in my pocket.

This shot is also available from a photobook collection called ‘All Business’ by redtree.me

    What a standout self portrait! superb imagery and just love the contrast of the straight banker look with that romantic sea of yellow flowers! fantastic work indeed and would love to see it in a gallery!
