self portrait, then…
Posted in personal, pia's photos December 28th, 2008 by piablog

…I found this photo sitting on my mum’s sideboard. I am just 17. I remember taking the photo in my bedroom, with my canon AE-1. This is how I spent my saturday nights, I was more interested in experimenting with my camera and developing the film above anything else. And I was too shy to ask for models so I always used myself. I remember, I developed this roll of film on the following monday at school, choosing sepia tone over straight black and white.

    Soft Sepia always makes things look rich and gorgeous- though you would have done so in any tone- I am glad you could not find models- you were the best one for the job! That is a treasure.
