David Williams Photography Self Portrait

It’s been on my short list for awhile, so this weekend I decided to get out there and do it, take another shot of myself!

It was close to sundown when I took this so had to use two strobes, the first using a Canon 430 EX II shot at 1/2 power through a softbox (looking down on me) camera right. The second Canon 430 EX II shot at full power camera left (through a softbox) to help illuminate the area immediately behind me. Both Speedlites were on manual and triggered using Cactus V5 transceivers. Taken with my Canon 5dm2, in the image is my Canon 7d with the awesome 70-200mm f/2.8 IS II USM. Location was, of course, at Northern State Hospital. ๐Ÿ˜€

  1. Great to catch a glimpse of you David. Kind of like coming out of the closet or something. I don’t even use my name. The idea of using a self portrait never occured to me. Not likely to happen either. I wish I had that lens to play with.

      • We do. Sadly.
        I can’t really afford a lens like that. But I can afford old manual lenses and just got a Nikkor-N 24mm f2.4 which I took out for the first time today on my Canon. I love it already. Drooling over some old 300mm Nikon and Takumar lenses that are for sale in town. Gave them a test run today and am still analysing the results.

  2. You know, you look like some actor I’ve seen in a movie. I don’t remember the name. But yes, nice to meet you!

    I really like the photo too. The blue of the jeans really stands out and draws your attention in

  3. It is so nice to see the photographer who I love his photographs… Nice to meet you once again dear David. This is great shot of yourself… You seem so serious,… but the ambience where you sit is making a nice background, everything is being address to camera or to the photography… In your eyes, in your looking way, I see only photography…. The moment of the camera… Thank you, with my love, nia

      • You are wellcome dear David. Actually I wanted to make point in this, I mean you are busy with this moment as you said, something in your eyes to work on… My English language sometimes is being poor to express myself… You didn’t give a pose to your own camera, you are still working there by looking at the camera ๐Ÿ™‚
        So you look serious… Thank you dear David, with my love, nia
