Self Portrait

I learned about a group on Facebook: "The Photo Challenge" through this talented photographers blog and joined it myself.
We are given a weekly challenge/assignment to participate in.
Can I just tell you how excited I am to be doing this!!!
It's just what I have been needing to push myself back to taking pictures just for fun... for ME. (I take them all the time of my kids for myself, but that's not the same).

This week: Self Portraits; focusing on simplicity, & intriguing lighting
Sounds simple right?
Wrong.
It's not that easy to get a picture of yourself in focus, at an angle that you look great, with good composition - without being behind the camera! At least not for me.
But it was a great learning experience.
I now know what angles I shouldn't be photographed: close up, mug shot! ;)

These are great and I totally agree, self portrait challenges are super tough. Half the time just getting the camera to focus on me remotely is a pain:). Great job!!
