Today I go from 40 to 40 Something. Sorry if you were expecting a picture of a lovely model, but I felt the need to take a rare self portrait today. Of course, I’m hiding behind one of my favorite pieces of equipment, so you can’t see my chins. Cropping off my “five head” helps too, but there’s no way to lessen the impact of my gigantic head. Shooting with a wide angle lens with something in the foreground helps a little though. Oh, the camera in the picture is my trusty Horseman LX 4×5 with a Schneider 360mm 6.8 Symmar-S lens and a 545 Polaroid back attached.
