If you look through my posts, I’m not big on selfies and don’t take many portraits – or people in general for that matter. I much prefer to be behind a camera.
I had to take a self portrait for work so while I had the “studio” set up with a few lights – three cheap LED torches with shopping bags as diffusers, nothing expensive or fancy – I thought I’d have some fun – at my own expense.
With the fake premise of going for an acting role, I transformed into a couple of – perhaps shady – characters.
I hope I haven’t scared your children or pets! It’s just pretend 🙂
If you’re curious about my “office” space, here’s a rare insight into my lair … I built this space under my house myself and almost everything is second-hand, was bought on sale or built by myself over several years. You can see my “studio” set-up at the far end.
I originally built this as a space for me and my mates to game on our PC’s. My current PC with three monitors is a first generation i7 I built in 2008, it still serves me well … just. I have upgraded the RAM, Graphics Card and SSD hard drive, but it is getting close for me to retire it to a server and start with a fresh build when funds permit … maybe this year if I stop buying camera gear and mountain bikes 😉
