Self portrait—a (tv screen) reflection

Nikon D750, Sigma 35mm f/1.4

Today as I was taking my photo for my 365 on film I noticed my reflection in the tv screen. I found the sunset light in the room quite fascinating and used my DSLR to try to capture this moment. While I often feel wrong or vain for taking self portraits I’m slowly learning and growing as a person, seeing that the act of creating a self portrait can be so much deeper than just appearances. That maybe it’s ok to value myself enough to care about capturing myself, as a memory of this time of darkness, great struggle, intense internal battles, pain, survival, growth, healing and looking for light.

I decided to share some of the photos and writing I’ve shared over on my Flickr account. If you’re interested in seeing more of those images you can check them out here.
