Ainsley Murphy – Untitled Self Portrait

Artist: Ainsley Murphy
Title: Untitled Self Portrait
Grade: 11th grade
School: Campolindo High School
Teacher: Collette Sweeney

This piece is a self portrait I took of myself in my backyard. I placed my camera on a stable part of my fence, set the timer on my camera, and put my face close to the camera in order to make the main focus of the photograph my face. I also edited the photograph to make it black and white. I normally focus on portraits of other people, so it was fun to take a photograph of myself for once.
