BlastFromThePast | Self Portrait at 16/17 Years old

They were a little unsure at first in believing that they will shortly be able to ‘get-to-grips’ with some of the basic techniques which will enable them to do their own self portraits.  Step-by-step, they seem to be coming around, and I must say that I am really impressed with their efforts.  They are starting to take chances, and allow themselves to make the mistakes in order to progress.
