I was going to have the focus be somewhere on my body (earring, tattoo, freshly painted finger nails) but decided instead to focus on the little gadget that is visiting the zoo because I haven't returned it yet. Sorry Rachel it will find it's way back to you soon! To get this shot I had the older girls hold a black sleeping bag in front of me. To get an even background I duplicated the background layer and adjusted the curves until the background was nice and black. Then I erased back the camera. Normally I just burn the background a little and it works but it would have taken longer on this shot and I am an impatient PS'er.
and our Piper playing with the Brownie too. I'll bet it will be her that shares the love for photography. She is drawn to my camera every time I get it out. She got such a kick out of this old fashioned Kodak. I am going to keep my eye out for one of our own.
It is never too late to join Cara and I in the 52 Weeks of Me project! Please add your self portrait to our flicker group. Next week is Daily Activities.
