In an exercise to test some settings on my camera the other night I was forced to take photos of myself which I do not particularly care for. No one else was around for me to abuse. Once I had achieved what I had set out to test on my camera I started fooling around with filters in Lightroom. Several hours later these efforts led me to think that, of all of the challenges I have seen and participated on in WordPress, I had not seen any for Self Portraits or Black and White Self Portraits.
So, readers, I challenge you to post self portraits of yourself! Just please link or ping back to this post so I can have the benefit of seeing them. Be as creative as you want. If your self portrait is a photo of your feet or your kneecaps I am fine with that. If it is you bending in a backbreaking yoga pose then so be it. If you use a fancy camera or your cell phone I don’t judge. (Selfie sticks are welcome here even if they aren’t in Disneyland anymore!) If you use filters or don’t use filters I don’t care. If your interpretation of a self portrait is a photo of your dog or your Dahlia then hey, ok, whatever! I will see the humor in it.
If your self portrait happens to be in a great and interesting travel location that would be even better! Just have fun with it and let me know how it turns out! Happy selfie taking!
