Shooting my own headshots

Headshot challenge

As my profile pic on LinkedIn is a selfie from back in 2013, I decided it was time for new headshots and I challenged myself to make them on my own.

In my photography course we learned how to take pictures of yourself on your own. It’s actually quite easy. First, put your camera on a tripod. Set it to AV mode and make sure the self timer is on continuous mode. Next, use a stand-in object (in my case, a mannequin) for yourself to focus on. Press the shutter button halfway to focus. Now switch over to the manual focus on your lens. Lastly, press down the shutter button and pose.

Curious about my previous challenge of the month? In November I took on the task of redesigning my portfolio.
