I have totally loved seeing all of the self portraits in the Mortal Muse flickr pool, seeing the lovely faces behind the lens. This self portrait theme was a struggle for me. I tried taking shots inside and outside, by myself, with my dog, smiling, not smiling, day light, evening light, crappy indoor light. I studied the submissions to the pool again and again as I tried to decide how I wanted to approach this. I found I was most inspired by the unique ways lighting was used. Often used to only reveal part of the whole, still hiding, still holding back.
I love the way Sarah used light to retain some mystery in her self portrait, to hide in the light.
