Barkly - Terry, Canberra Oz

Self portrait - taken with the setting sun to my right on a cold winter's evening holding an OM40. Remote is in my right hand with a 2 second delay.

Hi Terry,

Lovely directional light, a bit like flash except softer and no fall off in the background. It's great to see you are still using the old OM series.

Re: Barkly - Terry, Canberra Oz

You're brave taking & showing a self portrait like that, but it is a good shot & one that I would say flatters you too.

Re: Barkly - Terry, Canberra Oz

Terry - you remind me of fim critic David Stratton (At the Movies), and I might add that is more a compliment to him than you!

Anyway, it's a nice self portrait even if you do look slightly preoccupied as to what the camera is doing - I think that is a problem all of us face (pun!) when taking self portraits. It's like a dentist trying to pull his own tooth.

If you don't mind me adding my own phizog to your thread (let me know if you do) meet, "Good Cop - Bad Cop!"
