This weeks theme was SELF PORTRAIT.
Yup. EEEK was my first thought. But....I decided that I could find a way to get creative. Last week when it was mentioned that we would all be doing the same theme of self portraits, there was no mention of "face only" (I just read your post Megan) :0) So seeing that I am 6 months pregnant, I figured the best way to show what I am all about right now would be to get in the BELLY! Plus, Christina has been asking for a belly shot. So this one's for you C! I had a plan in my mind and I think I executed it ok. It's not as clean and crisp as I would have liked it, but it was the best I was going to get.
I love how Christina made hers so casual and told a little about what she loved. Who wouldn't love these new kickin' boots she just bought?! The processing of muted colors with the black and denim is so great to me. I also like the texture and angled lines of the fence she is sitting on.
Also, it seems every week that unintentionally each person has matched so well with their partner on their theme's. I am expecting that will be different this week for self portraits. I just couldn't get Christina to do a belly shot no matter how hard I tried! :0) In any case, I would normally put her photo ahead of mine, but I liked how when I positioned them with mine first that we are facing each other.
Looking forward to seeing everyone's shots for this week!
