I ♥ Faces Week 15, Self Portrait





I must confess that I have been dreading this week because of the subject! I HATE taking photos of myself, however, I did discover that I am still a fun type gal! I actually had fun with this little session. I tried all my lenses and actually liked the 50 mm shot the best. The crop is what came SOOC. Hop on over to I ♥ Faces and see how others captured themselves! By the way, one of the requirements was that we could not use a tripod!! We had to be holding the camera in our hands! It was hard with a bulky camera!





The kids entry was captured at the last moment last night! She was so tired from dancing all night! What you cannot see is the tutu she is wearing! LOL! For this shot I grabbed a point and shoot Nikon Cool Pix and was pretty happy with the results!

GORGEOUS!I was thinking of you as I hauled mini van ars a crossed your home state. I thought I wonder if Jo lives off this highway? I could pop over and have a little post Easter photo session. Or maybe she could bail me out of jail when I get tagged for felony speeding!

Oh, you are definitely a fun type gal! The way you processed the image really makes your eyes radiant. The sweetness of your child entry is endearing. A sleeping babe is so very precious.
