Week 11 – Self-portrait
We are in the double digits, that’s exciting 🙂 Almost three months long of doing this. Crazy.
Anyways, the 11th week theme was Self-portrait. There is a unique quality about this photo though. The guideline was that we were not allowed to be in the photo. You had to use environment or props to create an image about yourself. The theme was chosen because part of knowing and understanding your photography is knowing and understanding yourself. The lack of self in the photo was meant to make you think about what environment and composition can say in a photo because often times in a portrait, it isn’t the subject that says the most in the photo – it’s the environment they’re in. So this theme gave us a chance to kind of look into ourselves a little bit.
Scores thus far!
