This self portrait was done against all odds. The cops were watching me, the fabric I had meant to bring got lost, and my remote broke after my test shot. However, I was really excited about the possibility of the end result so I used what I had, finished as quickly as possible, and came home to edit happily. I love where a photo edit can take you, and how much you learn when trying to beat the odds.
