I'm almost always uncomfortable in front of the camera and even more uncomfortable sharing photos of myself -selfies seem to be the height of vanity sometimes- but I had quite a few outtakes from August's self-portrait theme for the Twosday link up so I thought I'd share a few with you. In doing these, I came up with a character that I wanted to portray through the photos and used that to guide me in the posing and composition to help alleviate some of the awkwardness. Thinking of it as an art project rather than "pictures of me" made it a lot more fun, and I'm pretty happy with how they turned out!
I think this black and white one is my fave. I just wish that a) I'd taken my ring off for the photo and b) I hadn't cut my fingers out of the frame!
What about you? Are you comfortable in front of the camera? xo
