Self Portrait 5

Written by: Zanita Whittington

This image could be so much cooler if I could manage my own hair. I usually don’t style it beyond a smudge of serum because it gets so brutalised at different jobs. I swear I’ve had clumps of hair fall out after some crazy up-dos. It’s so depressing to see it all run down the plug hole.
I changed the colour of the sky from its vivid blue to purple using the selective colour tool on photoshop. I also think this shot could be improved if my elbow wasn’t pointing down the lense of the camera, if it was stuck out to the side a little more the silhouette would be much more interesting. My chin could be slightly lower too, makes for a more flattering light and line on the face and neck but the eyes need to stay catching light for maximum dramatic effect.
