I can’t believe I took this photo one year ago. It is one of those few photos that I have taken and I truly like. It’s so special to me in so many ways. I remember before taking it, I made conscious decision of how I want my photography to look like, I sat down and thought about who am I and what I like and the keywords that should represent me as a photographer. I didn’t want to be “random” anymore. It has now become something that I look at when I need inspiration and it reminds me of who I am. A huge thank you to Courtney who is the girl on this photo. Also I have been getting questions of what kind of backdrop did I use for this. It’s not a typical studio backdrop that I used here, this photo is taken down the dirty lane near the place where I used to live. I liked the texture and the pattern of the wall. I chose it, because I didn’t want any distractions. I just wanted to focus on Courtney

Every year around my birthday I take a self portrait to reflect and to look back. It has been wonderful. More in my blog: http://www.beritalitsphotography.com/my-yearly-self-portrait-2014-bright-airy-and-happy/

Hope everyone had a nice bank holiday weekend (in Ireland), and those not in Ireland, hope ye had a great weekend and a lovely Monday! It was my birthday yesterday and we decided to spend a day with Atlantic ocean. We were kayaking, swimming and observing wildlife (jellyfish and seals!). Photo of me taken by Brian Dowling. My birthday self portrait coming soon!
