I remember being in first grade...sitting (as still as my 6 year old self could) on a little wooden stool in front of my entire class, while my teacher traced my silhouette on a huge piece of paper. With the light behind me and my shadow projected on the wall, I felt like a movie star.
So, this week for Elsie + Emma's 30-day self portrait challenge I wanted to capture my own silhouette. I read a couple of tutorials, but ultimately felt too lazy to actually read all the tips and helpful hits - so I stuck with what I knew about lighting and went from there. I set up my tripod in front of a window and placed myself between. I normally shoot in P (program) mode, but somehow I ended up in manual mode with 1/800 + f/3.8 flickering on my screen. It was a rainy day, but I was still determined to try it out. It's not the best silhouette ever taken (and I'm sure a little sunshine would have helped), but I am happy with the outcome. xoxo
