as I work on my own self portrait project, I’m inspired by so many photographers. such incredible use of natural light and shadows. just like Robin, who’s photo-a-day project is turning out really lovely, I don’t have much natural light in my apartment. I leave for work and it’s just getting light, and I get home in the evening and it’s dark already. so unless I leave the office for lunch, or take advantage of the light spilling in my windows during the day, I’ve been limited to using my interior lights, the flash, and shadows. but… I’m inspired, and I know I’ve got a lot to learn.

    I have been loving your self portraits, Alyson. And I hear you on the no-light thing. Luckily, the days are starting to get longer. I can tell this week; it was still light at 6 p.m.
