This is one of my Shadow-Works Series, Self-Portraits. It is the essence of me, as a Photographer, working from the proverbial shadows, to capture my subject, and in my Shadow-Works Series, that subject is usual me, expressing myself in various positions, arm and hand gestures, and with the use of my props, or tools—in this case my tripod, camera, ring-flash, and myself. I wait for the equatorial sun to get in a low angle, and then begin work on a composition. Photography is technically about light and shadow, and the photos in my series literally work on that foundation, and also, texture and background colour. Over all, I believe I can tell a story just with Shadow Portraiture, as these images are—Shadow Portraits.
