For some reason yesterday I got the idea that I needed to take some self
portraits, maybe its because I was playing with my make up and it
turned out and I had no where to go! Or maybe it was because for some
reason I decided to break my lazy cycle and roll my hair, so my hair was
curly and fabulous and again, no where to go. So no where to go + time
to kill = self portraits. I don't take anything more than point and
shoot snaps of myself once in a while normally because I always feel burnt out on
making everyone else look fabulous, but sometimes it just must be done!
I have to say i'm pretty pleased with the way these few turned out. One
good thing about editing my self portraits is I feel more allowed to
play with weird editing techniques, its how I pick up new tricks and
start digging for new textures and paintbrushes. When something works, I
start using it for client's photos. So in the long run, its never just
play for me, i'm always working in one way or the other. But I really
don't mind it. I think with out my job i'd be a total nutcase right now!
One thing I can't handle is having nothing to do for long periods of
