For this self portrait I framed my upper body with candles in different glass jars. By using these different styled jars they created different shadows on the floor. I put simple tea light candles in the jars to create a soft light.
For this self portrait, I used a long exposure to make the jar blurry but my face crystal clear. To make the jar blurry I moved it in circles very slowly making it look ghostly.
In this self portrait, I used a type of lighting that we studied in school called broad lighting. This lighting is supposed to light up the broad side of your face creating a dramatic effect on the shorter side of the face.
For this self portrait, I used a tea light candle and a mason jar to create the bright shadow. I put my hair down for this picture to have some texture near the candle light.
For this self portrait, I used a glass cup that our family bought from goodwill as a glass jar for the candles. This cup has grooves on its side which created stripe like shadows on my face.
For this self portrait, I used the mirror in my bathroom to reflect a part of my face. In this picture I reflected my eye to make it seem like its seeing double.
For this self portrait, I used one of the jars I had to cover my face. I usually use this jar to clean my paint brushes which is why I have a ring of three types of paint colors going around the jar.
