Self Portrait 2004

DSC_0003

I had this spiffy new Nikon D70 and I was experimenting with images and lighting. I was using natural light and flash. Anyone who wandered into my path got in on the experimenting. This was bounce flash. It has even lighting and there are catch lights in the eyes.

Once I mastered the basics I tried to get some family group shots.

DSC_0044We never did get that special shot. You know the one the professionals get. Retrospectively just to get the four of us in a single frame was special.
