Week 1 Self portrait
“ Night shift ”
I chose to capture a self portrait at work, we are in the middle of moving offices so everything is a mess right now, this building will be rubble within weeks, so it is a little bit of history as well, by the time the album is live I will have already done my last shift in this office. I decided to give the image a vintage feel to match the fact this is the "old" office. I achieved this by editing in Nik Analog efex pro 2 then putting a rough border on it in Color Efex pro 4. I used a tripod and a 10 second timer then went to my seat, and just out of luck the phone rang while I was waiting for the camera to fire, so the pose is completely natural. If we have a challenge for "something new" in the year ahead, I may try the same in our new office.
