A Photographer’s Vision


I'll be watching You!

This is not a pontifical dissertation of what constitutes a “Photographer’s Vision”, just some spontaneous creativity with this wonderful media of photography. Perhaps one day I will look back and make cohesive statements of what I was trying to achieve, but right now it’s just the joy trying new things everyday. That’s why I post a new image every day – some good, some not so good, but for me, all good as I am constantly trying new things and learning from my peers. Everyday – shoot and shoot some more!

This shot is a self portrait using a “mouth mounted” Nikon SB-600 Flash and Nikkor 100mm lens. When I was “somewhat” younger, I used to fire my Vivitar flash off in my mouth to scare my Mother. So I had an idea of capturing this as the Image of the Day as I was driving home. It’s  curious that it appears that I have a moustache (I don’t), but I am guessing it is the hair follicals under the skin that are lit from inside. Just a bit of photographic fun!  Try it and scare Your Mom!
