Let your light so shine that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father, which is in heaven...Matthew 5:16
This afternoon we had a big hail storm..We had just returned home from grocery shopping and barely got in the house.
I ran upstairs with the intention of shooting the hail stones with my camera out the window from a higher angle. I definitely had no intentions of doing a self portrait today, but since I had my Tamron 70-300 lens on my camera I decided to do a little practicing with low lighting to see how my new lens would work ...I only had one lamp as my main source of light and I shot this self portrait in the dressing table mirror..I decided to use it for the Meta Theme which I didn't have an entry for at the moment. I think it portrays who I am in a natural sense, experimenting with photography and playing with the light.
I am mostly amazed that there was no camera shake since I did not have my tripod along with me upstairs and this was hand held. It is a very impromptu portrait...no makeup and not dressed up..
No flash...one desk lamp
