Project 52 | Week 1: Self Portrait

Hi, thanks for stopping by! I have just embarked on a year long journey with 20 other photographers! It’s a 52 week project where we have a new theme each week to stretch our creativity and keep us actively engaging our love for photography! Every week under my post will be a link to another photographer, and she will link to another photographer, and it’ll keep going until it brings you full circle back here! It’s an incredible idea, and I am thrilled to be a part of this group of amazing ladies!! You don’t want to miss out on all of these posts, so be sure to keep clicking to see everyone’s photos!!

This first week’s assignment was a self portrait. As much as we photographers love taking pictures, that love usually doesn’t extend to taking pictures of ourselves. But, it puts us on the other side of the camera and reminds us a little bit of what our clients go through!

For me it was very hard to do this photo, because I like to be on the other end of the camera of course!! To get this I had to set it up and put my camera on a tripod and run back and forth to see what kind of shot I got. (You can actually see me holding the remote in this picture.. lol!) I originally wanted to put my boots on and take the camera outside to get my self portrait in the snow covered lawn, but had visions of the tripod falling over face forward into a snow pile. That would be just my luck. I am usually not home during the day to get a shot in natural light, but with the kids snow delayed opening, I had a perfect opportunity to snap this today. So here is mine:

Don’t forget to follow our blog circle.

Next up is Jennifer. You can find her very cool self-portrait entry here:
