Week 1 - Self Portrait (52 week photo challenge)

Those of you that have read my previous posts will know that I have taken up a 52 week photo challenge in my quest for self improvement....I have to say that the very first week was probrably the most challenging for me.

The first challenge was to take a self-portrait. Now one of the reasons I enjoy photography so much is that I can be behind the camera, and there are very, VERY few exceptions where this is not the case. My wedding day was probably one of those cases and those pics will forever be treasured, but there are not many other pictures of myself that I can say I really like. That being said, I found the idea of an actual self portrait quite daunting...

I tried being quirky....

I tried being serious....

I even tried being really adventurous...

I just didn't like any of them. So I guess I finally copped out and went the safe route with a pic of me behind my camera. Afterall this is one my all time favouritest places to be.
