Today I propose a kind of “self-analysis” exercise: trying to take a self-portrait.
Nothing like a “silly selfie“, but a real portrait.
They are sufficient a tripod, a swiveling display or a tethered camera (wired or wireless), a remote control and, perhaps, a couple of light sources (natural or artificial).
At first you will begin to master the technique portraiture without engaging models and models, but you will also realize what it means to be on the other side of the lens.
And you surely will learn something new about yourself.
