Not My Normal Self Portrait - Part 1 "The Shot"

Hey everyone, here we go with another instalment of "The Shot," The Shoot & The Gear," and "The Post."

Now, there is a back story to this image. While I was at Photoshop World in August one of the tidbits of advice I picked up about pushing your creativity is doing something the complete opposite of what you would normally do. Well, if you look at most of my portfolio you'll see that this about as far from my normal as I think you can get! LOL!

This was also a way for me to work on generating a concept, planning the various elements, figuring out how to light it and shoot it, and finally how to bring all the elements together in Photoshop and Lightroom. I'm definitely not a Photoshop genius, but I've picked a few tricks here and there, so it's always fun to try new things.

Stay tuned for Part 2 "The Shoot & The Gear," where I'll walk through the concept, the planning, lighting, and shooting.

I'm Now Up Over on Instagram!

Blog has been quiet for the past little bit, but I'm getting things back on track starting with announcing that I'm now on Instagram! I've been a very late adopter to Instagram, so I thought I would give it a try. I'm always looking for ways to share my images, and so far I'm finding Instagram quite fun.

You can find me at @darrenclarkphoto. I'll be posting every couple of days so check me out and start following if you like what you see.

Also, stay tuned for another instalment of "The Shot," "The Shoot & The Gear," and "The Post," coming up shortly,
