Dogwood52: Portait: Self Portrait

Start things off right with a “selfie”! Explore the self timer setting on your camera

Oh no! I hate shooting myself, that’s why I always stay behind the camera, but let me try anyway… Add to that the humid grass and the damp air. I used my remote shutter to shoot the pictures. My original plan was to lie of the grass and shoot myself in different position, but from the second I was set in position, I did feel the humidity going through my clothes. As soon as I got in front of the lens, I couldn’t have any natural smile anymore, and it got worse over the shots.

Since I love outdoors, I thought going somewhere green and wearing something green would be appropriate. I tried different poses, holding still or being active; then I didn’t qualify jumping as a portait photo, but it was a good exercice.
