Self Portrait: Month April


C'est Moi!
Focal length: 50mm
Shutter speed: 1/13
ISO: 100
Aperture: f/4.0

Here is a happy green shot I took for this month. Sorry for the delay- I have been going through some family stuff. This one was taken in the front yard of a house on my street. They had couple of beautiful trees that I thought would make a nice self-portrait. I shot it during sunset time with the "magic light."

You guys don't know much about me other than my pictures and so I thought I would take this chance to introduce myself a little bit. Lets see.. i was born in India (Tamil Nadu) and brought up here in San Diego most of my life. I speak my mother tongue fluently (Tamil) and you might be amazed that most of it is without an American accent! yay! I also speak/understand French, Spanish, Hindi, Malayalam and of course English! :) Ive learnt carnatic (traditional Indian) music for 12 years and can sing ok (not great- i shud have practiced more :P). Ive finished my Bachelors in Science in Human Biology and i am jobless. I hope to pursue a career with photography and biology by working with nature and animals (natgeo wud be awesome!) - my dream for now. I enjoy shooting beauty (un-egotistical people included), hanging out with my energized puppies, spending days with mommy, watching puffy clouds, eating chocolate, having rainy days, walking in calm beaches, singing beautiful melody that i cant get out my head, and enjoying every part of life.

Enjoy this picture and please introduce yourself further in the comment box or thru email! thanx.

Hay,
I noticed the two tones of the photo. Green and Kind of yellow. Green from the background and kind of yellow from the little sprig and on your face as well :) Nice combination...

I read your info, and It's amazing to know that there are jobless qualified people in America too. :O

Keep writing and shooting...! Cheers....!

The flower itself looks like an ornament worn!

wondering how you could pose and shoot at the same time.
