Portrait of the artist

Portrait of the artist

I want to preface this post by saying that I am not comfortable in front of the camera, I much prefer to be behind it and in control, so when I decided to play around with some lighting set-ups and the only model I had was me, the last place I thought these images would end up would be on my blog.

When I played with the images in Lightroom, I was surprised at how nice I thought they were. They seemed to capture something that I hadn’t seen (in myself) before and I thought I would share them and see what people thought. Is this vain or self indulgent? I sincerely hope not but please feel free to let me know what you think 🙂

I really like them! The second one especially, though I’m not sure why – maybe because it’s a typical “Brett” expression? I really like the ones that have that honesty about them.

I imagine it’s good to have time in front of the camera as well as behind it, even if only for the sake of perspective 🙂

As much as it must feel weird posting photo’s of yourself on your blog, I think the photo’s are great! You sure are one talented photographer. Think I must book you to take some shots of the family sometime soon. Actually might have a chat to you about doing something special for my Mum’s 50th which is coming up…..think it might be time for family photo’s!! Will be in contact
