Self Portrait Project: #9

There are elements about this portrait which are masculine, also, to me, this is the “photographic professional” look I kind of have in my head. It was the evening, appropriately, where I invited 20 friends to join me in the project. The friends could bring whatever they wanted to use in their own portrait (which I would shoot in the same lighting set-up I planned to use on the day) and drinks.

I made the shoot area partially private from the social space where people gathered waiting and chatting.

After the one and a half hours I spent shooting my guests (some images to come in a later post), I dressed and had many of them stand behind my camera and shoot me.

I like the quietness and composure of the image, it’s very simple.
