SELF PORTRAIT

25 Dec

I have taken so many pictures of myself. I took a picture of myself after coming home from a party. If the make up still looked fresh then doubtless it would be my latest Facebook and/or BBM profile picture. If the make up had already faded, then I would call my dermatologist friend and complained about my oily skin (sigh) Those pictures however are not self-portraits, those are proofs of Narcissism.

Then I read about self portrait. And literally, on Christmas eve, ten minutes after reading that article, I decided to give it a try. How difficult is it anyway? Like I said, I have taken a lot of pictures of myself. So there I was, taking out the tripod, picking up which cameras to use, making a concept of the self portrait photo session, taking out clothes to wear.

Now, more than 24 hour after my first trial of self portrait photography I can say that although intriguing and fun, it’s far from easy. I clicked so many (too many?) shots and only get a few good pictures.

Here are ones of them. Which one do you like?

    I like the one of you reading. Now that is you!

    Don’t you think it requires a little narcissism just to point the camera at yourself? Whether for a facebook avatar or for more serious portaiture, there’s an element of self-agrandizement in the somewhere…

    The mirror double-image has intriguing possibilities. Try some more of that.

      the mirror double image is really challenging. I should try harder in that area.
      A little narcissism is good, right? I mean if it’s in the right amount it will not kill you. It definitely boosts your self-confidence and really feel good about yourself.

      Btw, Howard (and dear other future potential readers), I’m exporting this post (and fashion/style-related posts) to missuptown.wordpress.com
