{in the picture}

Last week I came across a self portraiture project, {In the Picture}. As one of my goals for this year is to learn to take better/more interesting photographs and actually learn some of the techniques my camera has I found the project interesting.

I debated participating until I read in the description of how many self portraits to take this year. I quote: "If you're turning 30 this year, maybe that's the number for you." I came across the project the day before I turned 30. I've been looking for something neat to do to commemorate my 30th year.

I hate having my picture taken. But I like the idea of thinking outside the box and not necessarily taking a full on self portrait. And after having gone through the flickr group there are SO MANY neat ideas I want to try.

So I'm going to shoot for taking 30 self portraits in 2012. This is the first one and while it looks like I'm focusing on my camera, I'm really trying to focus on my hands. If I had to give one thing about myself I really like, it'd be my hands.

I'm interested to see where this project leads me.


  1. This is a fun project and I hope you have as much fun and challenge as I do.
