This superb one will be one of those really memorable selfies you've taken -- right up there with the one you took of you tipping a cowboy hat at the top of the stairs . . . about 4 years ago?

@joemuli haha... no! that would have been much easier... this was shot with my canon on the tripod... the lensbaby pre-focused and me having to hope i was holding the olympus in the right spot to be in the sweet spot :) i'm sitting in front of my backdrop that i got for christmas - yes i'm spoiled rotten!

@jyokota thank you so much for such kind words!!! but oh my - i can't believe you remember that one! i had to look - it was back in Jan 2013 - almost exactly 5 years ago...

Hey there! I was a little nervous getting you as a push partner this week! Your mind is super creative - I love your work!!

My initial instinct looking through your albums was to give you a "color" challenge lol.. But what fun would that be :), I want to think outside of the norm and get more creative like you with my photography ;) sooo.. I took a bit to think on your challenge...

Your images look very Dream like to me... or in some cases nightmarish. reminds me of another artist who I adore because of her vision. Her name is Brooke Shade - https://brookeshaden.com/gallery/ Have you ever heard of her? Anyways... She gets inspirations by brainstorming different props, settings, feelings, colors ect.. and then picking just a few from that list and creating masterpieces with it. so my theme for you is to create an image based off of 3 things I list here for you...

1. Dream
2. Reflection
3. Faceless
and for the fun of it.. bonus points if you add in lightening - cause why not :P!

Good luck I'm excited to see what you come up with! If you would like a different challenge just let me know ;)!

Fab portrait, technically superb and I'm totally with you on this interpretation of the theme.... far better than fancy shoes and jewellery. So triple fav!

lensbaby would drive me to the brink. it seems so hard to focus with it.
