Here we are for Thursday’s Special on a Saturday…. and I was scratching my head as to what I could use for this prompt. Then I remembered an image I took a few years ago, a rare selfie imitating the late, great Jane Bown.
This is her Self Portrait in a mirror: https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2014/dec/28/jane-bown-the-eye-had-it
Here’s my imitation, not using a mirror, but using one camera on a tripod to take this shot, not pin sharp because I was guessing the focal point as I darted to the tripod, set the self-timer, then darted back into position!:
Jane’s is full of rich tones, and was taken using natural light. On a dull evening in the depths of winter I used a flash, and have a rather poor, not to say unflattering image in comparison!!
