Dogwood Challenge 2019 Week 1

A friend told me about the Dogwood 52 Week Photography Challenge. I decided to take up the challenge as a means of getting more practice with the camera. Unless otherwise noted, all images are presented as taken with the camera, no color correction, no exposure correction and no cropping.

The challenge can be found here ( for anyone wanting to join me.

WEEK 1 : Story Telling : Self-Portrait – Take a picture that tells us who you are, without actually showing your face.

dogwood week1 : self-portrait
Camera : Nikon D5500
Lens : AF-S DX Nikkor 35mm 1:1.8G
f-stop : 1.8
shutter speed : 1/160
ISO : 1000

I started off with just the right screen, arranging windows to give a glimpse into my day to day life. I slid to the side and noticed the reflection of the light and reflector and thought that added a layer to the story.
