just a small note about a selfie

self portrait IV - in which the model takes a self-portrait

…this diptych has been getting some attention recently: “self portrait IV – in which the model takes a self-portrait” – one of the very few self-portraits I ever attempted. A number of people have asked me why I don’t do self portraits habitually, being both a model and a photog. The simple answer is I don’t really know how to point the camera in the right direction or focus correctly. I have seen some amazingly impressive, immaculately styled and conceptualized selfie projects by profesh models, and I think in future I will leave it to the experts. I’m pretty much the one person in the world whom I’m NOT in a good position to take a picture of, logistically speaking. I hope that answers the question.
