Dance Like No One is Watching

52 Portraits of Me - Altered Perspective (Week 13)
Once again, I'm having far too much fun with these themes. This is a pic I've wanted to do for quite a while.
Kali asked how I did this on my own - I used a tripod, focused on the flower and then used the 10 second timer, noting where my foot was each time I didn't get it quite right. David saw that I was setting up to take photos and offered to help... I declined and locked the door when he went outside, lol. The flower was being held by my flash and umbrella holder, the stem fitted perfectly in the hole for the umbrella. I took 38 shots in total.

Also entering this for my Get Pushed challenge of selective colour although the background is not fully desaturated.

Hope you've all had someone to spend your Easter with or had a nice relaxing time.
this is beautiful
you have a lovely slender figure :)

@annied Thanks Annie, just a trick of the light, the worst of it is under the flower :D

@bella_ss i often do way more than that trying to do selfies with the self timer and multiple shot settings !
April 1st, 2018  
@kali66 Yes, I think I was pretty lucky to get it in a good enough position.
April 1st, 2018  
Well achieved - I haven't yet been brave enough to tackle setting up for selfies - one day maybe? Locking the door is a good strategy I must remember that if I ever get brave.

last year i tried to do this for the challenge. it was quite difficult to get myself in the correct position. of course it didn't help that my eyes are bad. in the end, composite was what i settled for. aces on this, s. aces!

Excellent all around. I like the sharp focus on the flower the blurred background and the awesome bokeh. I'd say it was well worth the effort.
