Self-Portraits = Mission Impossible

Self-Portraits = Mission Impossible

It has been about a year since I last tried to take any self-portraits.  I got my hair cut the other day and wanted to take a couple pics. (RELAX, it is just a few inches and it will grow back. My hair grows like a weed). I am trying to figure out just how to accomplish the self-portrait without a remote? I tried the mirror method.  I am obviously no good at this because this is what I got!

Oops, cut off half my head

Easter Portraits

Easter Portraits

I was kind of bored this morning before heading out for family Easter gatherings, a good enough excuse for experimenting with self-portraits, right? These were the ones I liked best…Take note I am only smiling in one of them…very different from all my other self-portraits!

Me & My Dusty

Me & My Dusty

Until last night I did not have any portrait-style photos of me with any of my cats.  I decided we needed to change that status so I attempted my first self-portraits with Dusty, my loyal-as-can-be 14-year-old Russian Blue.  Dust didn’t feel like looking at the camera, he was more about snuggling but I still like these 🙂
I used the Urban Cover Model action by MCP Actions

Day 34 ~ Fenway Barn

Day 34 ~ Fenway Barn

This is another old barn right up the road from my house.  I braved the mud and found myself on the farm property (which is abandoned except for the crops that get planted every year) trying to get some photos.

I thought the texture of the barn wall would make a cool backdrop for a portrait, but the only subject I had available was myself!

Day 1~ 32.

Day 1~ 32.

Today marks the first day of my daily photo project.
I thought I'd capture a self-portrait to commemorate the fact that I turn 32 years old today.  The hat covers my gray hairs nicely.  LOL!

Looking forward to what the next year may hold 🙂
