I have always been inspired by those that can take great pictures, especially of themselves. I usually hate pictures of me, especially ones I take myself. But one reason I have gotten into blogging and photography is for a means to help gain my confidence back. I get great amounts of joy when I turn out a picture worthy of others’ comments. Or just my own satisfaction as well. I have been having tremendous fun joining in all the different photo challenges. I love playing around with the pictures in Photoshop. I have posted some of those as well. I decided it was time to take the plunge and be more comfortable with myself as the subject matter as well. I took many pictures, and did not like most. I chopped off my head many times. But here are some that I did like well enough to post. (The first is not my favorite but it was actually the best one of me holding the I am Beautiful sign.)
You can tell between the last two that the coloring is off. And the last one is a little blurryish, but I kinda like how it makes it look smoky. I look rather sultry in this one. It is kinda cool.
