This week's theme was very challenging for me. I am not comfortable being in front of the camera. I tried a few different things and just did not like the way any of them turned out. I don't like the way I look therefore I never like any, I mean any, photos of me. However, I refused to let that keep me from fulfilling this week's challenge. I mean one of the reasons I do these is to step out of that wonderful comfort zone and see what I end up with. Anyway, I was editing a photo of my son, I posted it yesterday, for the other photo challenge I am doing and decided to try a different take on my selfie. I picked up my camera and stretched my arm out to the side as far as I could while sitting in front of my computer. The only light in the room was from its' screen. This photo is a result of that. I'm not in love with it but it also didn't cause me to cry, which might have happened earlier when I tried getting a photo of myself. So here I am, some of you may have never seen a photo of me or even seen me in person. This is what I look like after a long day of being a wife, mom and photographer.
I am doing this challenge with some amazing beautiful photographer friends that all have taken their own selfie and shared it on their blog. Check out my friend Jennifer's gorgeous photo!
