I did something yesterday that I have not really done before, well seriously anyway. I took a self portrait. I decided that I needed a new picture of myself, since I have lost 40 lbs. in the last year or so.
It was a very interesting project. I began to look within in a way I have not done before. I found myself doing what I do when I take landscapes or travel photography. I try to uncover more than the obvious, I try put things in context and relay what I feel inside as I make the photograph. It was the same with the self portrait. I looked at myself as a “subject”, tried to determine how I wanted to portray myself and then questioned what I wanted to show about myself that was beyond my physical appearance.
You can see the result by going to my biography page.
