A Rejuvenating Moment

Thursday, March 3, 2011


dreaming away...

As a photographer, I don't have that many self-pictures taken by me. I would really love to learn the art of taking self-portraits, but I find it quite challenging. The picture above was taken by me sometime last year. It took me about twenty shots to get the desired look I was going for. This is what I did... I put my camera on self-timer and used my dresser as a tripod - because unfortunately - my tripod broke. Then I ran over to my bed, posed quickly and came back again to see if I had a the "one" shot. My little girl thought I was crazy! Lol By the way, I'm still without a tripod! :( And this was the final shot... This photo was featured on the Divas and Dreams blog. ;)
