Photo Coyote Yet another version of an ordinary reality.

Intentionally Overexposed


When I get sick and have to lie in bed for several days at a time, I usually end up taking self portraits to help assuage the boredom factor. I use a little, lightweight point-and-shoot camera so my illness-weakened arm can handle the strain of being repeatedly held up in the air.

For this particular shot, since I looked pretty horrible at the time, I overexposed the image to make my flu-face imperfections disappear. The window by my bed provided the extra light I needed to get the super-pale effect I was hoping for. I never know how this type of image will turn out.

Which is yet another of the many reasons I so dearly love photography.
