Behind The Lens

Location
This picture of myself was taken in my mom house on a glass table.
Time
Its was during the day,I would say around 2pm right after I decided to join a photo challenge.
Lighting
I wanted it to clear but at the same time not to much just to be more dramatic. It was all the natural light coming from the big window in my mom's livingroom and at the same time it was reflecting on the glass table and I though to myself: Hum.. Might as well start with my first challenge right now.
Equipment
This was shot with my Fujifilm FinePix S4200 and nothing else.
Inspiration
A photo challenge. I needed to take a specific shot every day for a month and my first challenge was a creative self portrait.
Editing
I started with rotating the shot and then I used lightroom. I tried a new preset I just downloaded at that time and then ajust the brightness, the constrast and the sharpness mostly. I tried to make the upper part of my face more in the darkness and in black and white and the rest of my face really pale with bold lips and eyes.
In my camera bag
First of all I have a backpack Lowepro, pretty good quality and size. I always have my Nikon D3200, my 18-55mm and my 55-200mm lenses. Also my FujiFilm FiniPix S4200. A led light, lots of batteries and a big 64gb memory card.
Feedback
I did not capture the perfect shot right away. Just put my camera on the 10sec time, put my chin on the glass table and believe me or not but after at least 15min of trying to get the one shot I was looking for I was sweating like hell. So don't give up after 10 wierd croocked shots and make sure to not be right next to the window and to not face it but just a bit on the side so that the dramatic effect is really there.
