Every man’s work, whether it be literature, or music or pictures or architecture or anything else, is always a portrait of himself. ~ Samuel Butler

At The Love Nest this week, I amused myself by learning to use my flash off camera, and shoot through my umbrella, and tried out different bounce flash techniques. Have I mentioned that I love photography?? :love:

P. S. self portraits are HARD.

P.S. again…why do I insist on growing my hair out when I wear it pulled up in a pony tail 99% of the time??

P.S. once again. Watch for the Photo of the Month Contest on Monday!

This is beautiful. And you made it look so easy. But I know it is hard.

Wow.

Kacey – that really is a beautiful self portrait. I’m confused about P-O-T-M. Is the theme purple? Did I dream it’s warmth? I swear I say a photo of your feet in warm fuzzy hand-made (I think) sock/slippers…or possibly I’m losing my mind…not much left to lose I’m afraid. :crazy:

I will never again attempt a self-portrait. You are wonderful with the camera. I am with you on the hair thing.
