nightbreath said:We started experimenting with self-portraits few weeks ago, here are first examples:
Nice images, but not exactly 'candid' portraits. Every now and again, we debate the meaning of 'candid', but as OP, I am really hoping to keep on-thread by having posters display and discuss settings/strategies used to quickly capture unplanned/unposed moments in time. My intent with the thread is to see/learn what and HOW others use their cameras to spontaneously and quickly make memories worth sharing.
I guess using a self-timer is a strategy I hadn't thought about till now, so maybe it actually does meet the criteria.
Just hoping all posters remember to describe their settings/situation more in detail so we all can learn to step out of our comfort zone of controlling the lighting/posing, etc.
