Behind the shot #6: At the Clearing | Self Portrait

January 08, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

January is always a month with a slower pace and after the huge indulgences of Christmas I wanted to get out and get some air, and of course,  take some self portraits. So I headed out towards Blackamoor. (En route I almost ran over a gorgeous dog and had to take a detour to the local vets to get him scanned and find his owner! Silly hound...)

I made it out just as the light was fading and unfortunately the clouds had come over and hidden what had promised to be a beautiful winter sunset so I decided to head into the woods rather than for the views.

I lost my remote a while ago so I shot this using a tripod and the timer function of my new Canon 5D mark iii

At the clearing

The technical bits:

Canon 5D mark iii / Sigma 50mm 1.4 lens f2.0 1/100sec ISO-250 / edited in ACR with VSCO pack 06 Portra 160+1 /
