30 Day Photo Challenge #1

One of the photography sites I visit, is doing a 30 Day Photo Challenge. I thought it would be fun to participate and it would give me something new to post on here since I haven’t been doing too much lately. Basically, each day a new assignment comes up and I’ll post the photo I did for that assignment. I’ll probably skip the weekends unless time permits, but I thought this would be a great way to get some practice in.

The first assignment of the day was to do a self portrait of yourself. I opted to do one of myself with my Star Wars collection, since that is one of my favorite hobbies. I used the lighting from my cases and my wireless flash located to my upper right in the photo. To help make the flash match the bookcase lighting I put an orange gel in front of it to give it a warmer feel. I also opened up my aperture to blur the background a bit.
