Richard Avedon Self-Portrait

Palm Springs Art Museum’s Richard Avedon exhibit is first-class.  The show runs through Jan. 30th.

The movement of the arms in this self-portrait is signature Avedon. Many of the portraits he shot show fluid fashion models gliding through the frame.

Avedon died in 2004 at the age of 81.

This shot was taken at the museum using ISO 800 film speed and a shutter speed of 1/6 second. It came out fairly sharp considering the camera was hand-held.
