WWWAT: Self Portrait

*clarification*
*I didn't realize the way I worded my awkward tabletop picture taking experience made it sound like i had sprained my ankle. I actually DIDN'T sprain my ankle, I only ALMOST redid the damage I have just recovered from :) thanks for the sympathy though, i'll take it!*



I have to say that this was one of the harder assignments for me. I mean i have taken *countless* self photos, you know, stick your arm way out, smile, and snap! But alas, I wanted this to be a little nicer/different. Well it still looks like i could have held my arm out and taken it, but I didn't! I actually used a tripod.

I almost killed myself a few times in the process as my first thought was to set the tripod up as high as it would go so that I could stand beneath it (i do that often with people I photograph and I love the look) but in order to make it high enough, it would have to be taller than me, requiring that I climb to get up high enough to see what i am photographing! Picture this: tripod on chair (two legs on the chair, one leg balancing on the table), me ON table (a not very sturdy kitchen table) aaaaaaaaand a ten second timer. Let's just say that my sprained ankle is finally feeling normal again, and I almost reversed that trying to get off the table... and my face was always out of focus. HA!

So I resorted to *sitting* Whoa! what a concept! that way one can be lower than the camera and still not have to climb to see through it! It's genius time! Anyways, I'm sure you want me to stop rambling on about this and just get down to business, so here you go...

let me know what you think *grin*



Now head over to American Mum and check out some more faces (beautiful ones i might add :)... and if you've got it in ya, let's see your face up there too!

Very cute!!

You know, my camera has a custom self-timer, so I think I can change it so I have longer than 10 seconds. Yours might, too!
