I created this weeks Movember self portrait to highlight mental heath problems.
Mental health problems can go undetected or untreated, often due to a lack of awareness. It is important that we raise awareness to help identify when there may be a problem and to throw off the stigma that surrounds metal health issues.
Mental health problems can come at any time, happen to anyone and are caused by many different reasons. For more information please click here.

The shot itself was set up pretty much the same way as last weeks Movember update, with just a slightly different positioning of the light. Additionally, the light was softened by positioning a white reflector in front of the flash head.
A thanks to my wife for applying foundation (to reduce the shine on my skin) and the writing.
