Good Morning!

DSC_0027


I'd like to challenge you to take a self portrait this morning. 
I know, why would you want to take a photo of yourself?  Maybe
you're not even sure how to do it.  It might feel a little
silly.  But trust me, it's fun!  One thing, you'll see if your
clothes have any stains on them.  Had no idea this shirt had a
permanent stain on it until I saw the photo.  Take your photo this
morning & you'll be one step ahead on the page of the week for next
week.  


It'll take a few tries.  Aim your camera's focus points
somewhere close to your face in a mirror.  And take a photo. 
You might find that the bathroom towels are more in focus than you...so
take another one.  


Through trial & error, you'll find that you have to look at the
camera lens in the mirror...that took a few times to get right. 
Don't want to see your camera in the photo?  Hold it by your hip
& crop it out. 


Send me a link to your photo.  I want to see what you look like
today.  It's good to take our photos once in a while...I'm pretty
certain you don't let too many people take it for you...and you need to
be in your albums, too.  Trust me.

  2. Posted my pic on my sorely neglected blog. Used the old hold the point
    & shoot at arm's length and point in the general direction of my
    nose method. Already deleted the other dozen shots I didn't like! :)
