My new project ... has begun!

My friends, it is with unbridled excitement and fond delight that I present to you, my new project; something I've had in my head for some time but have now finally brought to fruition...




My 52 self-portrait challenge! It will all be hosted and set up on Flickr, so if you have an account, please add me as a contact, or come and comment on my photos once in a while! (My profile is here; it will also tell you a little more about the project and its name.)

Of course, I will also be posting my photos here as well, so you all can keep me motivated if you're not on Flickr! (I may need the motivation.. tee hee.) It will likely be on the Friday, Saturday, or Sunday of every week, so I can keep a semblance of a schedule with this. And each photo will link to the Flickr page for it, which will have a title for each photo, and more of a description and details there.

So, without further adieu, week one...


1/52 :: Making Acquaintances.


Just something simple and fun for my first shot! :) That is the comfiest scarf in the world, for the record. And it's really hard to shoot without a tripod and a remote. Maybe not hard, but tedious. So some accessories may be in order! ;)

Let me know what you think!! I have some photogenic issues -- I think I look goofy in most candid photos of me -- so hopefully this will help in getting over that. I'm enjoying the project already!

I think this came out great but would still buy some fun accessories for the camera...just because. I really like your blog - found you on friendly follow - and am following now!

Oh my gosh you are adorable! I really like this pic. It's interesting that you're wearing both a summery looking top and sunglasses with a warm and cozy scarf. Keep them coming!

Awww what a cute pic! I love the color of your eyeshadow =D I do a daily mugshot on dailymugshot.com with the webcam so it makes it a lil easier to take pics. Happy Weekend.

Yay!

I love this shot too. Love the wide eyes, the mystery, the juxtaposition of the warm, snuggly scarf, with the tank top and sunglasses.

Did you do a post process on this, or straight out of camera. I just see a warm, soft tinge that gives it a light dreaminess on top of the mystery.

Can't wait to see more! ^_^

Oh, and I know Target and Walmart sell inexpensive tripods ... at least for now. ^_^
