December Photo of the Month: Self-Portrait

December was a busy month in our Flickr group. We welcomed about 20 new members and 100 new photos to the group. The team just convened to vote for our monthy photo contest winner for December, and while all the shots were good, the winner was pretty unanimous.

This self portrait below by Sami Heiskanen took home top honors. Among the reasons cited were the lighting, composition, and mood created by the image. It appears to us that this is a throwback to this famous shot by David Hobby that inspired many others, but of course with it’s own unique twist. Congrats to Sami! He’ll take home a new pair of Trigmasters or $50 of free gear here.
