Self Portrait: High Key

JPatz_20141225_3J8A5922-Edit_WebHere is a standard clamshell high key portrait of me.  I probably need to go back and increase the exposure on the lower half of my face a little but it works for now and I’ll be using it for the next two self portraits I do.  Stay tuned for the next two weeks to see what happens!

EDIT:  I need to give my mother-in-law credit!  I set up the lighting and got everything ready but she actually took this picture.  So really a portrait.  Thanks Jayne!
