This photo was taken by my father in or around 1959 in Clinton, NJ in our old Ford Woody Wagon. I tried to reproduce it and incorporate both.
My dad produced hundreds of photographs in New York and New Jersey from the late 1940's through the 1970's. Many were assignments and three are in the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Many were shot with a 4x5 bellows camera or early 35MM SLRs. All were hand printed. Check them all out at: https://musicwithmike.com/photos

The Assignment: Hi there creative Framers!! It is a New Year and as tradition states, our very first challenge is a self-portrait! What fun...or maybe not..right? Us photographers are notorious for hiding behind our cameras, it is both our security blanket and our happy place. But once a year, at least here at 52Frames, it is time to step in front of the cameras for a change. Creating self-portraits offers both a serious artistic challenge and a way to build your photography skills. And you have the most patient model ever...yourself! Often, the best way to learn about lighting, portraiture and human composition in general, is using the most willing model that you have available...and that's YOU! So don’t be shy creative Framers, have fun, experiment a little, think outside the box, and show us YOU.
