I took some self-portraits and let me tell you something: it is not easy.
As part of a challenge in Tribe Red Leaf Facebook group, we had to take some self-portraits. I never really took the time to do it properly but given that I had to spend an entire weekend at home because of my husband’s broken leg, I decided to give it a try. So, I set up my tripod, did some test shots and spent one hour just doing the best I can. Taking self-portraits is not easy. You run, you sweat a lot, you have to think as a photographer, but also as a model. It’s exhausting!
First, it was really frustrating. I had a hard time figuring out my focus point, but when I made it work, I started to have fun. Lots of fun! I changed outfits, tried different poses, angles, etc. It was so much fun that I did it again the day after. I don’t think I will become a self-portraits addict but it was fun to try something different.
So, here are a few of my favourite photos. It’s not that I love these images and that I think I am gorgeous, because I see all my flaws. But I would say that I like those pictures because I look like the real me. 😉
