Self Portraits

posted May 11th, 2011
Hey, everyone. I'm doing the May self portrait challenge. It's pretty fun, but I'd love some ideas.
Give me some ideas, or show me your self portraits! Thanks!

I'm also doing the self portrait challenge!

Me frozen.

A tribute to family lost to cancer.

A more feminine although almost bald me.

I have also done pictures of my own eye and such which still sort of counts as a selfie! LOL! Play around and just have fun. Take shots of you hanging upside down on monkeybars, splashing in a puddle, putting on make up in the mirror, cover yourself with flour and look like you are trying to bake something, stick feathers in you hair and paint your nose yellow and take a shot of yourself in a tree! LOL! Just go crazy and have a great time and don't be afraid to look completely silly or even scary!!

I'm not a big fan of self -pic... but I fell in love in this scene leaving the beach so I posted:




and this because it was my birthday.

Ok the first two are from Annie and I setting each other random challenges, actually the majority, if not all of them are prompted by her or other 365ers...







Mornings, probably the least contrived and honest picture of me...

@asrai Man every one of them is great...

The guitar one I like, because it's one of my favourite shots to get when I'm doing gigs, though bass works even better because of the longer neck...

Clockwork jigsaw piece, great execution, the eye expression really sets it off...

About 1/4 or even 1/3 of my work involves self-portraiture... only posted one for this month so far, but I'm hoping to do lots more!



If I'm struggling with what to do, I typically just smear myself in paint, make-up... or drool fake blood everywhere and make a glorious mess.





And if I don't feel like doing my hair, I throw a wig on.
It's so fun to play dress-up. :)

I rarely do self-portraits. This was taken during my 41th birthday and I thought a self-portrait is appropriate. =>

I rarely do self portraits. I'm trying to push myself to do more. This is the main one I've done.



I don't know if this counts, but here's one of my earliest.


A few others:






Honestly, most of my self portraits are just like, my hands or my feet. I consider them self portraits since I'm pictured :D

Me, once I realised just how long I had to sort a band out for a charity gig ... Made me decide to wear a cat head for some unknown reason:



And my 'WHo ate all the pies' shot ... Actually made the top 5 in the selfportrait theme a few months back ...

posted May 12th, 2011
@edpartridge that second one is still one of my fav all time shots ...
posted May 12th, 2011
@fetishfaerie They are amazing photos

This was my first attempt at this style.. I willl do some more sometime soon.

posted May 12th, 2011
I've taken a few self portraits, but not an awful lot. These are my favourites.


^^ I like the lighting in this one, but I'm sure I don't actually look that short, or my arms and hands that chubby...well, all my leg below the knee is cut off, so that explains the short part.

I don't have much in the way of SP's. just these two really.

Me practicing and the 1 year old had to get in on the act.



And just plain old me.

My camera is broken right now .. I mean is back in Canon.. but this are some of the old self-portraits I have taken.



posted May 12th, 2011
part of me kind of wishes i had done this for may......but here are other ones from my project





posted May 12th, 2011
I've started the thing for myself to do a self portrait on the 1st of every month. I started in March, but somehow more of them sneaked their way into my project...
Here they are sorted by date:



Don't know if the next two count...


Now normal ones again...



Wow, that are quite a few... Well that's embarrasing... xD
posted May 12th, 2011
I'm going to need to steal a lot of your ideas. I've done some selfies I love and some I wish I could burn from the internet and my memory forever. Here are some of the better ones:

Wow, this thread made it to the hot topics list! Seems like everyone wants some ideas (;
@sourkraut Those are really cool, especially the backbend one!
@sarahbear9995 Nice shades, lol

Have very little- I dont like doing selfies, probably because i cant see how the photo is going to turn out until after i have taken it.
Nice tread

I have lots and lots, but here's today's:

I've done a few self-portraits. Sometimes it's easier than trying to find a model in a pinch. It can also be more challenging, so you get to learn. Win-win.

I hate the processing here. I've learned so much since this photo was taken, but I do like the composition. For what it's worth...


For the purple theme back in November (for pancreatic cancer awareness). Again, don't much like the processing...too yellow...*sigh*


Tried to get a picture of myself dancing. Very tricky!!


This was fun to do...


Getting a little better!


I rather like this one...over-processed, but stylized and fun:


I need to re-do this and get better focus. It was the only photo I took that day...


Okay, I'll stop spamming the thread now. =)

I have a couple of others but it makes me realise out of 368 pictures there are only about half a dozen with me or parts of me in them! I wasn't brave enought to do the challenge, perhaps if it had been a week, but a whole month of selfies... wasn;t that brave.

I am horrible when it comes to selfies... but I try sometimes. Here's my most recent one.

posted May 13th, 2011
I'm just a selfie so i have loads, have a look! I had a bit of a break down last week so had to fill in some without me! BUT i feel i'm back on track for now. Here are my favourites
Keep it simple and make editing your best friend

Make it relevant to your day...

Focus on a part if you're not feeling like a photo!

Make-ups A good tool!


Good luck everyone doing the selfie challege!

I call this a self portrait but it shows less of me than what everyone else has done. What is the May self portrait challenge?

posted May 17th, 2011
@kelseyyx23 there is no way on this planet I could take a photo of myself every day of the month...no matter what I was doing.........it'd get so tedious lol. I decided the only way I could complete this challenge was to take a feeling I had about that day and portray that eg


interspersed with more normal self portraits I've found it a boatload of fun. The normal days are where I'm planning my next loopy one.



it's all 'me', some of it's more about what's inside my head but that's still what makes me me lol.
