A self-portrait is a representation of an artist, photographed by the artist. I am currently taking a self portraiture class at the Houston Center of Photography and I wanted to share these five photos that I used for my first assignment. We were to take five photos that told a story. There was no other direction given. Taking photos of myself was not something I was comfortable with so it took my almost a week to do my homework! I decided to use my fisheye lens and keep the hood on to give you a “peephole” look. Although all the photos are staged and were thought out before hand, you can still get a sense of what I do day to day in my home. It was meant to be “tongue in cheek” moments into my daily life. I set up my tripod and used a cable release (which is visible in each photo) so you don’t take my photos too seriously.
I really needed that bottle of wine after this shoot!!!
