My friend in self taught photography, Jess, from Old Nichols Farm is hosting a monthly “Facing Yourself” photography challenge. Not my favorite subject, but it truly is a challenge. Not just in the “it’s awkward to post a big ol’ pic of yourself sense either. It’s actually quite challenging to get focused images of yourself.
I’m still working on it…with a little wincing along the way. The above shot was kind of just dumb luck…while using one of my son’s teddy bears as a stunt double for focusing! ;) (Thanks for that tip Jess!) My hair is wavy…I am still not comfortable wearing it this way very often. So that makes this a kind of double whammy on the facing my true self theme.
And lastly…this one I featured a few posts back, but in B&W for You Capture. Another SOOTC shot.
My reflection in a side mirror of my friend’s pickup. Ugh…homesick again on that one. :(
SO…any one out there up for this challenge??? Turn that camera around, don’t wince too much and snap away!
Thanks, Jess, for your little self-portrait Tips and Tricks AND for making us all turn the camera on ourselves now and then.Pin It
