Taking creative self-portraits is an odd thing. It usually triggers a mix of emotions in me. On the one hand, I’m excited by the creative and technical challenges of creating an intetesting photo as both subject and photographer, but on the other hand, it also makes me feel incredibly self-conscious and slightly embarrassed to be posing for the camera in a variety of contrived situations and poses. If these photos weren’t taken in the privacy of my own home, I don’t think I would have done this challenge at all!
I’ve posted the entire Self-Portrait Challenge list in a previous post in case you’re interested in seeing some of my other photos — or even if you want to try the challenge for yourself! Even if you never share a single photo, taking creative self-portraits will challenge your creativity and skills as a photographer and is well worth the effort.
