  Something different this time. I enjoy taking photos of myself, i think it’s a lot of fun to experiment and see how many different looks you can pull off. This photo was taken during a day when i was utterly bored, so no it was not Halloween! It started off by me just wearing the hoodie but i thought it was nothing really interesting and i ended up using white eye shadow to make my whole face white and black eye shadow for the lips and under the eyes. I have no make-up supplies at home so i used some leftovers from a halloween party. I decided i wanted to create a creepy looking character, so i didn’t try to look pretty for this one. And that’s probably one of the few photos that i used a slight texture overlay for those white specks you see. I also lowered the saturation, leaving only a hint of color. My hair was actually dyed white back then so that’s no Photoshop. P.s. I really miss my white hair.

Equipment used: Canon 450D, lens: 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS, Canon 580ex ii off-camera flash, shutter speed 1/90s, f/8, iso 100, focal length 18mm.
