I know I've been posting a lot lately, but to be fair I have also been creating a lot more content than usual over the last couple of months. Recently I did some portraits of a few other photographers in studio. Admittedly I could be more original with the lighting, posing and post, as I directly mimicked some of my favorite portrait work done by Annie Leibovitz, but it's clear that I don't come anywhere close to her level of skill and artistry (or that of her editing team). I also got to use an Oliphant hand painted backdrop! All were shot with a Canon 5D (the original) with a Canon EF 85mm f/1.8 lens attached, set to f/5.6, 1/160th sec, ISO 100. I also wanted an updated self portrait in this lighting setup, so instead of having my assistant stand in as my test subject, I handed my camera over to him and took a seat in the studio. Technically my assistant focused and pressed the shutter button, but is it still considered a self portrait when you yourself set up the lighting and output, the camera settings, instruct the person holding the camera how to frame the shot, and additionally do all post processing on the shot? I think so, but that's just one man's opinion.
