52 Fridays – Week 1 {Self-Portrait}

This week marks the beginning of a project I have started with a group of photographers from the Bloom Forum.  We have picked an idea or theme for each week and everyone will post one picture related to that week’s theme every Friday.  Each photographer will link to another photographer to form a circle of pictures for each week of the year (52 weeks).  I am excited to push myself creatively and to have the opportunity to get to know these women through their photographs.  Our assignment for this first week was a self-portrait.  Although I am glad to get to put a a face to a name (for those brave enough to show their face…), I was less than enthusiastic about showing my own. I find the whole self-portrait process difficult.  The technical part of it is hard enough but quite honestly I feel just plain silly taking pictures of myself by myself.  I’m pretty sure it shows…

Next up on the circle is Kate Williams.  See her self-portrait here.

Deanna - Awesome boots:-) You are right on that taking photos of yourself is not something most of us with cameras enjoy doing! Love the expression on your face! I have about 50 like that that I just couldn’t bring myself to use! Instead of looking less than thrilled, I looked like I wanted to hurt someone! HA! Look forward to following your work this year!

Mary Schannen - hahaahahhh – sorry – laughing at the whole ‘I feel silly taking picures of myself, by myself’ – totally can hear you saying that! And the boots rock! (btw – my friend wanted to know where you got them). Melinda – I’m soooo glad you are in this group! We don’t always get a chance to catch up, but at least I can ‘see’ a bit of what you are up to each week!
