Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven...
St. Matthew 5:16
For the last two days it has been cold and rainy so did not do my self portrait outside. I am experimenting with using existing light in the mirror over our sink in the kitchen. I used manual focus opening to an Aperture of F.5.6 with a shutter speed of 1/30. This is a very natural portrait with very little lighting. I did not do any adjusting in photo shop.. this is right from the camera. When I shot this picture I had no idea how it would turn out , hand holding. I had thought of using a tripod later in the case of camera shake...I was amazed at the results of this portrait and decided to use it.
(*If you notice "Nikon" the letters on my camera is turned backwards indicating that I shot this in the mirror reflecting my image back.) .The lighting that was used on this is from the ceiling light 7 feet away from where I am standing and a small uncovered tungsten bulb light above the mirror...plus a little assistant illuminator/self timer lamp/red eye reduction lamp on my camera that kicks in when the light is dim.
