Posting for my Thursday Photography Challenge- This week's challenge was a self portrait.
I had a little bit of difficulty with this one- first off I am not too comfortable with taking pictures of myself and felt a little bit like a dork sitting outside doing this. But I had a few come out nicely. Also, getting good lighting with my old point and shoot camera is hard. Either you have the flash on and it is all washed out or it becomes very blurry easily without the flash on.
The other hard part was that I don't have a tri-pod or any remotes so these were do the old fashioned way- holding the camera up in my face!
I think my favorite part of this was the editing. I enjoyed playing with the images, fixing colors, doing cool effects.
Here are a few of the pictures I got for my self portrait this week.
This one is my favorite- I love the frame of it and how it looks like I am behind a rain drop covered window. I also really liked the soft focus and colors of this one, even though I look a little pinkish!
Here it is in a different effect- I like it like this too.
A few more that I liked how they turned out. Once I got over feeling like a dork this challenge was kind of fun.
This one was taken with the flash- I like the composition but I had to darken it quite a bit to keep the lighting from being too harsh.
On this last one you can see how without the flash it got a little blurry- but I like the color and softness so much better without the flash. I guess I will need to keep working on it!
