This photo was produced for a class project on portraits/self portraits where I explored applying conventional portraiture techniques to non-human creatures. The goal with this project was to use the techniques I'd learned photographing people and use them to portray a lizard. By carefully applying composition, color and lighting, the photograph attempts to establish a sense of personality and emotion in the same way a portrait of human would.
