Self, Self, and more Self Portraits

Today I set up a white poster board, grabbed my camera and remote control shutter, and did my own photo shoot. Now, let me tell you: I probably snapped about 200 pictures in the short time I photographed myself and only these pictures you are seeing actually turned out good. So, for those of you who ask, “What’s your secret?”…there isn’t one. Patience is the key tool. Patience.

Since a lot of photographers are wary of pointing a camera at themselves, I’m challenging you all to link up and share a self portrait! It can be formal, silly, or unique! So, go get in front of your camera and have some fun!

I absolutely love these - and since I have a new remote shutter release, I'm going to play this weekend. Right after I take down the tree.
