Mini – Assignment – 2 -Self Portraits

Self Portraits – Mini Assignment #2

February 15, 2010 by Tammy McChesney

How many of you take pictures of family and friends and always stay behind the camera?  I bet each and every one of you raised your hand (with the exception of BarbP).  Well, let’s change that scenario!   Let’s step in front of the lens for some fun with self portraits.

Self portraits may be intimidating for some but remember they don’t have to be of your face, they can be of your hands, your eyes, or the back of your head, just anything that reflects who you are or your mood for the day.  There are many ways to take a self portrait, holding the camera arm length and snapping, the self timer mode on your camera, taking a picture of yourself in a mirror…the possibilities are endless.  To learn more about self portraits, take a look at the links below:

You may also want to google self portraits for some ideas….now on to Mini Assignment #2.

After reading the links and researching the subject on your own, we would like you to post your self portrait and then tell us a little bit about yourself and your portrait in your post.  It will be a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.  As always, feel free to do more than one portrait but please make a separate post for each portrait. Please feel free to comment on everyone’s post.  And most important don’t forget to link your post to Mr Linky so that all can enjoy!  Once you are finished stop back by and comment here on what worked for you and what didn’t.

Have fun with this and show us some creativity.
