I have already posted several times in the past week about my new electric upright bass, so it is probably little surprise that this week’s fiftytwo self portrait is me playing the new instrument.
I love the new bass but I am not entirely satisfied with the picture. If I had the time, I would have tried to find a hidden way of supporting the bass so I could take more control over composition, lighting and focus. Because I was using natural lighting and a long shutter speed this one is quite blurry due to movement – I couldn’t hold completely still for over a second and the light changed making the room much brighter.
However, it serves to illustrate the trembling excitement of a new bass, so I was content to keep it.
