The very excellent YouTube channel The Art of Photography by Ted Forbes has a load of videos that are well worth watching, whether in relation to technique, profiles about photographic artists, or general ideas and concepts.

Another great feature is Ted gives every couple of weeks a photo assignment. You can then submit your image (via Facebook, Instagram or Twitter) and he puts together a selection of his favourites in a video. I submitted a couple times before but never been selected (to be honest the standard to rather high). However… this week the assignment was “Self portraits” and I was flippin’ chuffed to see my submission appear in the video of selected images.

I still think I look a bit grim but that’s art I suppose
