From time to time, I do self-portraits. First and foremost, it’s a great way to practice portraiture and lighting and angles, etc etc etc, but it’s also very hard to take a portrait of oneself and I like the challenge. Plus, it’s fun and I get to see myself in new ways other then the mirror which is never flattering or forgiving.
This past Halloween, I dressed as Rosie the Riveter. So, of course, I had to take some self-portraits. Also, you’ll notice I don’t retouch my photos. I know I have flaws and I think flaws are what make each of us unique, human, and beautiful.
