Photohunt: Self-Portrait


Our Condo in Maui

This week's Photohunt theme is Self Portrait. There are several ways of doing a self portrait - Mirror, tripod or other support, or just holding the camera at arm's length. I hunted around and actually found samples of each of three methods. None are very creative but I found all of them interesting.

The first one is posted at the beginning of this post. This was taken in our studio condo in Maui in November. I love this picture because there is so much going on if you just look - husband sneaking off to the side, the mirrors on the right repeating and repeating... I did really appreciate the mirrors in the studio since it was rather narrow. It gave us a feeling of a bit more space.

The second picture is one that I hand held in December in Time Square New York. There is a set of steps leading up above the discount box office. It gives you a great view of the activity. And it is a perfect place to take a self portrait.

The third picture is one taken while camping. It was dinner time and set up the camera on the table and angled it up. I love the perspective and all the red.

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Thanks for the accompanying comments, Marta. They made me look more closely and for longer at your photos. :)

Great idea for posts for this theme - a more creative idea! The mirrors are great too for the illusion effect.

What a great collection. I'd be embarassed to post a picture of me when I've been camping! LOL

Have a stellar weekend - pouring rain here. Oh well, at least it isn't snow.

Hi Marta, wonderful collection of self portrait photos. I think the one in Timesquare is really cool. I like the diversity in your composition and perspective in all of your photos. Great job on this week's theme.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Three great photos for the theme :-)
