Day 243: Exit

The challenge for today’s shot was getting the light I wanted and focusing properly, as I was shooting a self-portrait at a wide aperture. The light is close to what I wanted but maybe a bit too dark since I had a fair amount of black clipping. The focus wasn’t entirely what I wanted. I would have liked to have the necklace more in focus, though I do like the blurred effect the wider aperture gives.
