In my first formal photography class, my junior year of high school (1990!), I quickly discovered the "Photographer Self Portrait Through Shadow" shot. I still love it. This is a slight variation as the subtext of this shot is my deliberate "shunning" of the classic shot behind me: the inimitable cliff of Hout Bay that juts out into the Atlantic. Of course, if you haven't been here, you haven't a clue what I'm talking about. Below, I've posted a photo I took, in May of 1012, of that iconic cliff:
Thus, the first photo in this post was a bit more fun for me as I roamed around Chapman's Peak this past week.
A Photo a Day with Juliet Hutchings
Though I specialize in animal companion photography, I like to take photos of all sorts of things. I take this photo a day project as an opportunity to grow my skills and share how I see the world around me. I hope you enjoy.
