Self Portrait

I’ve seen this type of photo before and decided I wanted to try it.  Last night, I was on the North Shore area of Pittsburgh taking photos with Brad and Dave (I’ll post some of those pictures on another day).  In advance, I packed some extra gear so I could try this on the way home.  I’d call this a test photo….not the quality I’d like for a final photo. 

I knew to do this right I’d need a helper with me.  That helper could drive the car while I sat in the back seat taking the photos.  From there I could adjust the camera settings and make sure I captured a great photo.  Because I didn’t have a helper, I did the best I could with the settings configured in advance.  I couldn’t adjust them while driving and I used a remote camera exposure trigger so I could drive without being distracted.  I figured I’d get some test shots, so that when I had a helper in the future, the photos would be great.  And I was right.  Now I am ready to really get this right.

Anyway, I think the test shots turned out pretty good.  Certainly, not perfect.  What do you think of the photo?  Leave a comment to let me know.
