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
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
Self-portrait of my friend Heather Cheddar and I. One of her nicknames for me is Kritter 🙂 We were out celebrating her birthday at the local dive Karaoke bar
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!
Another for the photo scavenger hunt. This is #20 (a part of me). The "part of me" I was trying to show is my love of funky necklaces. You can't see this pendant clearly, but it is one made of dichroic glass. I liked this pic because it shows off my sassier side 😉
I hate my profile but wanted to experiment with a new perspective for a self-portrait. This is me on Valentine's Day
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 🙂
