Award Shortlist   


By John_Muriel      
This shot was a bit of a challenge, because I was making self-portraits, so I had to deal with all aspects of the shoot.
I learn that planning and patience play an important role
I had this idea in my mind and i wanted to recreate it in the camera.
A mysterious theme of a man standing in the dark, wearing a hat and smoking a cigarette.
I then determined what photography techniques will be used in the self-portrait project. I felt black and white photography was the best choice for the purpose, and my face would be the main subject in the photos,but not looking straight to the camera as if i was being watched.
