Who Shaves The Barber?
Monday, March 05, 2012
I have been working on my Me&My Project with some frustration. There are some people who have posed for me but have yet to send me their essays. Today I photographed my granddaughter Lauren who will be simply Lauren Elizabeth Stewart – Student. But I also had to do another which I thought was important too. Who shaves the barber? In my case I took a picture (what you see here is the Fujifilm instant print) of myself. The instant print does not show enough space over my head. I think I may have corrected that with the real film. I took pictures using my usual Ektachrome 100G which has recently been discontinued. I also used a roll of Fuji Astia which is supposed to be the equivalent of my Ektachrome. I will compare the results.
How do you think I took the picture? The camera in this shot is the camera, lens and tripod that I use in all the Me&My Project photographs. I am holding a bulb with which I take my portrait. The bulb is firing an identical Mamiya RB-67 opposite the one here and it has an identical lens (the 140mm) but the tripod is another. I thought of using a mirror but the picture would have differed from the others in the project.
