I’ve been trying this new style of Self-Portraits lately. I create these with my Canon Digital Rebel XTi that I purchased with one of my paychecks when I graduated from college. I did them in black and white on timer with one light source from my lighting kit and umbrella. I’m also limiting retouching by only adding light to areas that are too dark (opposite of the single light source). This was suggested by Pari Dukovic.
