    Hi Ben,

    This is so good. It took me a while to figure it out. Despite the tip in the title (self-portrait) I first saw the profile of a creature… Then I realized it was you standing there. Brilliant flashlight effect!

    Thank you again Joel. That’s exactly what I see – a kind of creature – which is how I like to shoot self portraits. It’s an opportunity to become something new, and at the same time, something familiar. This shot practically took itself. I had an idea of a kind of shape I wanted to light myself with, and this is the first and only photo I took. I set up, practiced for a minute, took the shot, and there it was. Pretty amazing when it happens like that.
