365 Self Project

Today is already day 28 of my 365 self-portrait project and I haven't shared a single one on my blog yet! Well with my efforts to be a better blogger here are my favourites so far........









You can always follow my efforts over on Flickr, but I will be posting more on my blog now that I'm all caught up. I'm enjoying the challenge so far, but as I've found out with my 365 Scientist project, there are good times and bad. Some days having to come up with a new idea seems impossible, but I'm trying to note down any good ideas when I have them. 

For someone who has always hated having her photograph taken, this is a tough project. Although, since taking the Unravelling ecourse I have managed to take pictures of myself much more easily, and they come out ten times better than any photo taken by someone else. I'm learning what poses and ideas work for me (they are the ones I can bear to look at!) and which ones I love horrendous in. Mostly I've learn't that I like a self-portrait better when I'm not smiling. Not sure quite what that says about me.

Oh these pictures of you are wonderful! Love them! Yes there will be good and bad days with doing a 365 project. Sometimes I struggle coming up with an idea for Blue or the photo just doesn't turn out the way it was planned. But we just got to keep going and learn from it. Keep up the great work. Have a nice day! :)

Thanks for the encouragement! Oh, I really struggle when I have a vision for a photo and it just doesn't come across very well - I must try to deal with that better!

Thanks everyone! I'm really enjoying it most days. Still need to get over the fear of taking self portraits in public but I'm working on it!
