Yeah... my head through black posterboard with a hole in it.

My son's arm.

An INSANE amount of outtakes. *sigh*

I used two sons. One to sit in my place while I did "That Photographer Stuff"... another one for the hand... and then I sat and the other son pushed the button.

A billion times.

I still don't like the lighting... I wish the highlights in my eyes weren't straight on... But, I don't want to ask my boys to help me again. So... here I am.




I hate self portraits. For one... they always take forever... up and down... over and over and over again.
And for two... they always have me in them.

*sigh*

Oh, Lydia. The number of times I have thought this precise thought when I am forced to be my own model. Perfect.

You are SO funny. And I agree with Bear - the centered catchlights are perfect. Total deer-in-the-headlights look :)
