An Old Collection of Self Portraits (2006)

I shot these images while living in Appleton, Wisconsin. I think it was raining outside and I was in a creative bent, so my quaint apartment served as a studio. The outfits were thrown together from thrifted clothes. I did my best to look the part of a sullen man-of-the-past. It is interesting to note that the real reason for straight faces in so many turn-of-the-century photographs was the long exposures needed for primitive films; it was easier to hold a straight face for two seconds than to hold a smile. Speaking of smiles, these still make me chuckle a little.

Camera: Canon 5D
Lens: Canon 24-70mm f/2.8 L
