This is my fifth project for photography class. I was asked to explore taking a photograph of myself in this self portrait I did just that to the best of my abilities. I didn’t edit the image yet because I figured I should be honest in what I look like after a full day of three kids and running website. I will edit it in Lightroom.I am learning to use Photoshop Lightroom 4 to import my images. Then I will begin to use Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended – Student & Teacher Edition if I feel like I need to do more to the image.
I have to say this was daunting because who wants to look at themselves. It was also difficult because I had to figure out how to place myself and get where I needed to be while waiting for the camera to take the picture. I decided I need a remote.
I selected this one because it is made by canon and the ratings seemed great! I spent hours trying to get a shot that was actually me. I know how hard can it be to take a self portrait. Well, it is very hard because you look at the image and say this says nothing about me. I guess the secret is out. I am huge football fan and I especially like my college team the Gators. It must be the memories or the fact that I met my husband there.
