Flash Photography For Selfies

Svengali

As I learn, flash photography makes you look more masculine because the light is so hot. It creates very deep and sharp shadows. I had to pull them out with Photoshop, but that’s how it’s done. It emphasizes a man’s jawline. LOL. However, it’s hard to keep your eyes open with the flash and look natural. Oh well, Halloween’s coming up. Here’s my Svengali look. LOL.

Sharp-edge shadow self portrait

My attempt to create self portraits with sharper-edged shadows, thus making myself look more masculine. You do this by putting the light source closer to the subject, in this case, my face. It doesn’t quite have the same effect as the flash because my bulbs might be a lower color temperature (3500K rather than 5500K, even though it says it is 5500K on the bulbs, mighta been duped).
