Like most photographers, I’m a bit shy when it comes to standing on the other side of a camera. Few photographers have the talent of my friends Mark & Ray, both of whom create stunning self portraits. However, when the light is just right, even the most shy of landscape photographers can create a nice self portrait.
What? You were expecting me to use a soft box way up here? 😉
