For with thee is the fountain of life...In thy light shall we see light..Psalms 36: 9

I put my camera on the tripod with a 10 sec timer and set up one flood light boost the existing was raining outside today so this experiment had to be done inside the house....I worked on several and most of them I deleted:) Decided to keep this one for the portrait light theme.

    Pleasant likeness, despite apprehensive expression, possible worry about the camera falling.

    Thank you all for the comments...I wasn't worried about the camera falling Carl, but after
    doing several self portrait experiments the studio flood light was beginning to make my eyes feel sensitive and I was trying hard not to blink....One advantage of the flood light is that it warmed up the cold room upstairs and it was a like a nice heater...It was fun to see what I could do with that type of lighting for the theme.
