Being playful with Self-Portraits

8:39 AM Edit This 7 Comments »
While DH has vowed to be sure I get in more of the pictures this year, being that I am the photographer, I want to learn more about self-portraits too. I love seeing the Self-Portrait Tuesday submissions. The theme at Self-Portrait Tuesday is to capture yourself in a way that is not necessarily flattering. For instance, a photo of you sitting in a pile of laundry, or in your grungiest outfit. So I made some funny faces as practice for the February challenge. Yeah, not so flattering....no makeup, hair pulled back, I didn't even try to set up my camera on a tripod - here I am just holding the camera at arm's length.

I can't say that this is a face that I make often, perhaps I've never made it before in my whole life but it is a face. LOL. Thanks for looking. Have a marvelous Wednesday.

Hi there! Thanks for visiting my blog today! I need to follow your lead and take some self pics also, seems I'm not in many of our family pics either since I'm behind the lens too. ;-)

I am loving this photo, I do this all the time, its the only time I end up in a photo. I find that using the close-up setting at arms length works really well, LOL.

I did a self portrait a few days ago. (in my blog), but I always hate my pics, so I end up hiding behind something. (like a starbucks cup, or a camera, etc) lol. Cute pic!
