So this past week was ‘self’ on Project 52 over at SHUTTER|bag’s facebook page. I have been trying to make a point of doing my hair and make up every day. Most days it actually happens. The days it doesn’t are the days that pretty much nothing happens. You know how that is though, don’t you?
So here is a photo I snapped of myself with the iPad. I really wanted the extra grain that comes with shooting with the iPad indoors. I wanted more of a vintage film look. Plus it always helps when you can see yourself (big plus for using the iPad).
That is me. Don’t let it fool you, though. The light is bouncing off of my pale skin so you cannot see all of my freckles or acne scars from my teenage years. I also placed my hair over the corner of my jawline to make it look more angular and not as squared off as it really is.
I did not edit this at all with an external program. I took the shot in Instagram and then applied one of their filters to it. No cropping, no nothing. The easiest shot I have taken in a long time. ;)
I would love to see you join in the fun. Next week is “Steps”.
