I’d like to thank Mother nature for her kindness and gift of light this past week. I do hope that she is just as forthcoming this week as last. While I am still working on the whole self timer thing and finding my “window”, I believe I have made some progress. I can still totally pick out all the things I am unhappy about, I am more satisfied then I have been.
I skipped a week. For multiple reasons, but I am going with mercury being in retrograde. No seriously, it is, and apparently that is why my car is dead, I have computer issues and I have not been on time with my weekly post. That and that I did not do my self portrait last week because I was feeling like an ugly failure. We will call it mercury poisoning.
In any case, I did another self portrait. I am struggling with setting up the self timer and making sure the thing is focused in the right spot and that I am in the said right spot. Frustrating. I have been having a hard time with the cruel Michigan winter that has everyone counting down the days until the spring solstice. Is that when mercury gets out of retrograde? I hope so.
So here is my result. So far in this process I am discovering how little I really know about my camera and how I really do not really like my appearance. I knew going into this that it would be much more than learning to take better portraits, but I am not sure how much self reflecting I am up for. Or maybe its just the mercury talking….
