my backstory of a self portrait


This is the day that decides by itself to be beautiful
~ Henry Shukman ~ 

This is the backstory of how a self portrait is born....one of several tutorials I offer in Mish Mash


It all started one evening, in Texas, Spring 2012, when I was looking out the backdoor to witness such beautiful light.
I grabbed my twirly skirt, tripod, remote
and my handsome Field Assistant of course 
since I was planning to cross barbed wire and  trek 
thru a rugged cow pasture. Next thing I know we are hiking towards the pond

It takes a minute of patience and just the right angle

and of course a remote timer!!
  
I think we make a pretty good team, eh?
