What camera settings please?
Near-darkness is difficult for me...
Aren't selfie self-depictions easy ? ;)
(...a rhetorical question...)

For my photos in the dark, I use a powerful lamp, it's really important. 
Here's my camera settings:
Shutter Speed: 1/50
Aperture: F/9
ISO Speed: 400
I don't understand, what do you mean? (even though, I know I shouldn't answer it since it's rhetorical)

I appreciate those tidbits!
I'll try those settings,
although I believe I have tried those
particular settings...

I know you know that well-composed
 selfie-self-depictions
are far harder than suspected...
For every good result, I've
discarded at least 10 attempts!
....most viewers don't suspect ;)

Pénitence face aux ténèbres... C'est une belle image, baignée de mystère, de laquelle se dégage aussi une grande douceur, celle qui survient lorsque tous les conflits se sont apaisés, lorsque tous les doutes se sont estompés. Alors que reste-t-il : le repos, l'attente ? La renaissance ? La pose, qui dégage les épaules en ramenant les cheveux sur le côté, a l'élégance de l'iconographie classique, et le clair-obscur est parfaitement maîtrisé. Petit regret vite dissipé : l'encadrement de la fenêtre, qui n'est pas totalement masqué par le rideau, pourrait risquer de détourner l'attention du spectateur -- si toutefois ton dos n'accrochait aussi bien la lumière. Emotion et méditation.

Intriguing; I like a lot the sharp contrast between the title and the slightly...dark? unsettling? mood given by the image.

Ah I'm glad you saw that! It's true the picture looks unsettling, and dark. It tells the story of someone who's finally courageous enough to face her bad actions. (that's why her back is full of light, and her face facing the dark, and she's nearly naked because she's true to herself).
It's not with fear, anger or sadness we should face our mistakes, but with serenity, to finally make peace with ourself and move on to the light. To understand who we are, we must accept and not fear, the darkness inside of us. Light seems tempting, and in photos, people thinks that dark picture can only show dark emotions, but I disagree, I tend to think that darkness is very calm and it's like it's protecting you. It's also where you can reveal yourself, no one can see you there.

Anyway, thank you so much for your comment, and sorry for my long comment haha

Mmmhh...a very intresting point of view. Like (I think) most people, I've always beeen fascinated by darkness, but as something hidden, mysterious and, as a consequence, a little evilish. I've  never thought about...protective darkness; a concept worth to be thinked about.
Don't worry about long comments; it's always both pleasing and stimulating to read about one other's impressions! :) (Smile)
