My Self Portraits

Hello and thanks for visiting my website. a little background, I am disabled and suffer from debilitating #bipolar I also live in poverty, so gear, I dont have very much at all and I live in a 250sqft space, my useable working space for my #selfportraits is roughly 5ft x 6ft, where I have to set up my lights, my camera, my background and of course myself. I have a Nikon D5600 body, and my favorite lens, is an old school Nikkor 35mm F2.8, I also have a Tamron 28mm F2.5 Adaptall 2, a Kamero 135mm F2.8, and a Minolta MD-Rokkor-X 50mm F1.7 For lights, I do have 3 light stands, in 2 of them I am using 160watt Leds the 3rd light is has an 11watt led that I have inside of an actual soup can, and I have a Godox TT685 flash, that I use sometimes as well as a Pixel MC-650 mic I use for my videos and the Pixel Oppilas wireless remote. I am usually about 2-2.5 to 3ft from my camera, since that is all the room I actually have inside. I always shoot full RAW and in Manual mode, and yes these lens’s are all full manual. For software, I process my raws in Rawtherapee, do lens correction and crop in digikam, and if I want to get creative I use Gimp. I dont have the means to get creative as I would actually like to. lack of space alone prevents most ideas. But I do what I can. Since I do not have any friends that enjoy photography, I do not get out much to capture the world as I would like. And since I do not have the room to set up a studio, I dont have the opportunity to host models and clients. Since I am unable to drive, and live in the country. I dont have really any opportunity to get out to capture anything. So I capture myself. One it is good practice and it keeps me out of bed. I love to shoot, and it also is my therapy.
