After seeing all of my fellow muse's posts this week and reading your comments about the selfies you added to our flickr pool, I think the verdict is unanimous...self-portraits are challenging. But they also provide us with an amazing opportunity to look inside ourselves. Really. Deep. Down. Inside. So deep that we find different parts of ourselves that we may not have even known were there.
C'mon ladies, we showed this week that we can be sexy, creative, soft, dreamy, sweet, raw, soulful, whimsical, quirky, joyful, and we can even make ourselves queen for a day. (Sorry, didn't mean to get carried away, but there are just so many fantastic images in the pool). And we can also use the opportunity to JUMP!
I have been working on the art of the jump shot for several months. It has been a fun challenge for me, with so much to coordinate--light, focus, facial expressions, timing. And since my remote control is broken there was a lot of running back and forth with this photo above. My husband acted as a stand-in while I tried to get the focus
I don't quite know how old nichols farm got such a beautiful, crisp silhouette here. I imagine there wasn't a lot of time for multiple attempts running back and forth as the precious daylight was fading away. Amazing.
Thanks for sharing all the little pieces of yourselves. It was truly inspiring to see you...alter egos and all.
