52 Weeks of Me - At Arms Length (6/52)

>> Sunday, February 6, 2011

I felt like a teenager taking a picture of myself this way. It is all you see on Facebook. This was taken in my bedroom with me laying down because that was the easiest way for me to control the camera and not focus on my forehead :)


Join Cara and I in the 52 Weeks of Me project, it's never too late and is really a lot of fun! Stop hiding and get in front of the camera! Please add your self portrait to our flicker group. Do you have any ideas for a theme? Let us know your thoughts in our theme discussion. Next week is Profile.

One of our 52 week participants is having a self portrait challenge this week. Check out Chelsey's blog and her super cute little girl Rauri.

Great shot. Perfect focus. How many tries did it take? :)

I love this angle, I too want to know how you got the focus so crisp on you eyelashes like that. I did the run of the mill stand in front and snap photo. It was fun to look through all the goofy facial expression that I made trying to "look natural".

SO pretty! I want to hear more of your process, too!

Gorgeous. You're one talented 'teenager' getting a perfectly focused shot like that. Love the mood it evokes.

Liz Mays Sunday, February 06, 2011  

What an incredibly cool angle/pose. You rock!

Joey Lynn Resciniti Sunday, February 06, 2011  

Gorgeous! You might also try a picture of yourself in the mirror of the girls bathroom. I see that one a lot on facebook too!

getting focus on this one was definitely a challenge! love those lashes:).

Kimberly Sunday, February 06, 2011  

Oh wow! No way could I get that kind of focus at arms length! I'm impressed.

Jen Sunday, February 06, 2011  

I am such a sucker for eyelash shots. Maybe because I can never seem to capture them well. Beautifully done.

Very cool! You did a really good job focusing on your eye lashes, which I know is hard doing a selfie.
You should add it to my Selfie Saturday linky. The theme suggestions are optional, and your photo is a great SP to share with peple.

Woweeee! You really NAILED the focus! How many attempts did that take? And I love the angle of the shot as well!

Michelle R Monday, February 07, 2011  

Wow! Great focus on this!! I'm rather jealous of you and everyone on fb who can do this!! I'm going to have to put this on my photo-wish-list! :)

Very pretty!
