An area where I have always struggled with my camera and knowledge of photography. I have tried numerous rounds of self portraits that end in blurry images, incorrect exposures and just simply bad photographs. I found myself reverting back to auto mode, something I told myself I wouldn't do.
It's a new year and I have new challenges set for myself. I've officially been shooting only in manual mode for a little over a year now and I won't revert backwards when it comes to self portraits. Perhaps this may become a new series, or perhaps something I work on silently on my own. Regardless, it's time to focus on the portraits.
Do you have any tips for self portraits? How do you manage these shots?
I took these photos in manual mode with no post editing.
Last year I took some self portraits that you can see here.
I always find inspiration in these lovely blogs who have beautiful self portraits: one, two and three. And I have always always admired Katie and her amazing talent for photography.
Happy Weekend friends!
