My Digital Photography School assignment this week was to take a self-portrait. I discovered two things. The first discovery was something I mentioned in a previous post, I would much rather be behind the camera lense instead of in front of it. The second discovery I made was that it is really, really difficult to take a self-portrait because there is nothing to focus on. You set up the camera by focusing on an empty chair, set the self-timer and bound to the empty chair just in time to hear the shutter click. I got a lot of exercise doing this. Be forewarned, these are not the greatest shots I’ve ever taken!
After taking all these shots there were two things I wanted to do. I wanted to finish Inishmaan because I LOVE THESE CABLES!
And, I wanted to pick up the phone and call my dermatologist to schedule a mole removal.
