Day three hundred and nine was taken after a sleepless night (does that mean it's still day three hundred and eight?). I'm talking not a single wink of sleep. For some reason, goodness knows why, I decided this would be the perfect time to take a self-portrait. Honestly I'm surprised my eyes don't look all blood-shot and wild.
All in all I'm pretty happy with how the image turned out. I'm having lots of fun playing around with off camera flash to give a little bit of fill light without being as harsh as direct flash. When a flash or external lighting is used effectively it can really balance and enhance an image. If nothing else this gave me a chance to dress up and trail run what I'm planning to wear to a wedding this Saturday (today!!). Pretty picture and prior planning?? Double win!
