Self Portrait

I want my portraits to have an honest look about them, both from a technical aspect and from the point of view of the subject.

I learnt many things from out of date publications where authors stood upon well exposed soap boxes and declared that rules were not meant to be broken. The photographic sermons preached in those books I rescued from charity shops meant little to me but I have always been rather found of the illustrations; particularly the portraits.

I’ve tried to incorporate my own style in this self portrait, to tell the viewer something about me, purposely avoiding clean lines and highly technical lighting techniques.
