I find it is never easy to look at pictures of myself because most of the pictures I've done my own makeup and hair. And the lighting is never good . And I'm making some kind of goofy face. blah blah blah. I think the only day so far in my life where I have liked every picture is my wedding day. Because.....somebody else did my hair, makeup, and was there to tell me if I was making a dumb face.
I've been watching my friend, Michelle over at Callia's Corner the past few weeks being all diligent and taking all kinds of great self portraits of herself. And I was all like, " Yeah, I'll do that today." She made it look too easy. I had all intentions of trying to do this multiple times to practice but life and kids intervened and I got to it once, in 100+ degree heat. Yeah, me!
So it shows up when I publish this post.... I think this is my favorite one...

But this one was good too....
My house has exactly three places where any lights hit all day ( note to self: next house...more windows). And yesterday happened to be all overcast and cloudy so none of that light was coming in. So I headed out in the heat by my fence. I set up the tripod and a piece of tape on the fence for focusing.
Her job was to make me laugh and keep the dog out of the way. See how much that worked...

I course I couldn't not have her jump in one time.
Thanks for all the tips , Kelly and Kristine! I might actually use one of these for my front page photo and about page.
