52Frames – 2021-20 – Red

Am I posting two self portraits within two days? You bet I am.

For 52Frames, the theme this week was “Red”, with an extra credit for “red flash gel” (which I claimed). For once, I knew exactly what I wanted to do for this theme… and then arrived on Sunday evening at 2230, swore a lot… and got the tripod out of the shelf.

I’ve been wanting to play with colored portrait lights for a while; consider this a small incursion in the domain. I lit myself with a couple of Lume cube, one with a red filter and one with no filter; took a couple of dozens of shots with different angles and a bit of variation on the light.

I still have no idea what I’m doing there, and this one was definitely a “lucky” shot, which I like quite a lot – but… more experiments required 😉
