Selfportrait- the forest

Taking a self portrait is more difficult than you can imagine. I take mine with a self – timer, wireless. The timing is crucial. In this post I want to show some photos I took yesterday. Have been practicing different styles all weekend. Saturday I did the out of focus portraits and Sunday I tried getting full focus and perfect sharpness. I succeed in some and in some not so much. It is hard telling when you are out if you have gotten that perfect shot or not, it isn´t until later when home again your realize that 90% of all photos lack something like focus, sharpness or are to light or dark etc. But it is a challenge that I love.

Enjoy my portraits from the forest of Grythyttan.

  1. To start with, the snowberries are sensational ! – we have nothing like them in winter Dowunder.
    And the shots with the timer are REALLY good: you must have been thrilled with these frames, I hope, Katarina !

      • The fun of it all is seeing what you can come up with using the timer, eh ? – some fantastic (jumping off the stump), some plain beautiful (mid-shot leaning in from the left) and some from the other day that capture the season wonderfully (no. 5 down, where the f.g. is sharp and the rest not) …

  2. Excellent photos. You of course have an advantage in that you are photogenic. I don’t think I would try such an experiment for public consumption.

    • Thanks Andrew! Haha. I dont think you should be afraid to take some self portraits. It is a challenge for everybody I assure u! There is always something wrong with your nose, your skin etc. me myself am doing a chemical peel of some sort that I will take some time to write about. At the moment suffering from very dry skin. Haha 🙂

  3. I think the photos are excellent. I love the pensive shot of you looking away from the camera. Looks like something I would see in Vogue or suchlike! My daughter does well with the self-timer thing ( I guess they are the selfie generation, so it is not such a surprise in that respect). I do quite agree on the difficulty of viewing one’s photos out in the field. I have endless trouble seeing the photos I take with my phone camera.
