Characterful & Charming Self Portrait Awarded 'Photo Of The Week' Accolade: self portrait


We choose a 'Photo of the Week' (POTW) winner every Monday and this week, the POTW accolade has been given to a self-portrait which is brilliantly captured and definitely striking. 

The image was taken by ePz member ivanweiss, and is titled 'Self portrait'. Here's why we thought it deserved to win the accolade:

"This is a powerful image which has been set up and lit really well. The light hits at the centre of the face, giving depth to the features and shadow where it's needed.

The pose and the eye contact give it an almost regal feel, and the clothes, table and background all tone in well to create a very classic looking photo. If it were a painting, it wouldn't look out of place in an art gallery."

ivanweiss' work is a great example of what you can achieve during the lockdown, using a home studio setup. Check out our site articles on self-portraits and home studios for more advice: 

'Photo of the Week' winners currently receives a 64GB MicroSD card with SD adapter from Samsung. Please note that there may be a delay in receiving this due to the current pandemic.
