Taking myself out of my comfort zone and putting myself in the place of my subject, I decided to do a self-portrait. I do these every once in a while. I'm not comfortable in front of the camera. I'd rather be the one making the images. The problem with that is I don't exist in images for my son. Most of my self-portraiture up to this point has ben straight portraiture, but the thing I enjoy the most is creating characters. So, I styled myself and the props as I would any other of my character driven portraits and photographed myself as I would any client or model.
