    And I had to try it out myself before i had someone else on it. When the hubby came home he was a teensy bit angry... to say the least, that I built a 8ft x 8ft contraption in our living room. But he got over it and actually helped me assemble it the rest of the way. So here are the first test pics, let me know what you guys think, and if you have any interesting pose ideas too!

    Oh boy! I envy your space to build something like that and I envy your skill. This is a neat concept, it makes me think of beauty and rebirth spawning from an ethereal womb, or something like that. The cold temperature is an interesting choice; it really colours the mood somewhat hostile or uninviting, especially when considering the seriousness of your stare.

    Thanks everyone! These are just test shots. I will be able to do more when I have an actual model AND someone else behind the camera! Doing both can be exhausting! But some of the out takes are pretty funny, considering my balance isnt all that great ;)


    I really like the term 'rebirth". I wasnt sure what to title these, but I think that may be it! My creativity always seems to be cut short once I get to the titling stage.

    I will post a photo of my weird invention probably tomorrow. I plan to try a few more different things as I have a day off!! (finally!)

    yea i like these ones, your exposures are alot cleaner then some of your others, good job :thumbup:

    Mya, being a self port addict and always trying to come up with new ideas... how difficult do you think doing one really nice self port a day for an entire year would be?!
    Difficult huh... yep thats what i thought... not sure if you've seen this on Flickr yet, but i was truly impressed, and thought you'd not only be inspired by the sheer brillance of this photographer but maybe give you some new ideas. ;)

    365 - one self port everyday for a year

    (i think they tend to get better towards the end.. you can actually see her skills getting better!)

    Oh yes, her and i have talked on occasion through flickr mail! It would be hard, and If i didnt have a day job (becuz no one wants to see photos of me asleep watching the golden girls on the couch 297 times) I would try it. Photography for me though isnt about how many I can take. this idea I had for these shots was about a month in the works. I like the process, I like the design. I dont know if I would feel the same way doing a photo every day for a year. Does that make sense?

    Oh hell yes, defo... iv done a fair few self ports in the past, doing it everyday would be wayyy too much for me! I was just impressed by how many ideas this photographer had come up with... you'd think at some point your mind would just go blank!
    Doing it everyday would also probably take the fun out of it... she must have had some real strong determination to be able to pull it off and i bet she's thinking 'never again!!'

    Agreed!!
     
  11. Hey, these are really cool. In some weird way they remind me of Anne Geddes' work.

    Good Lord, a self-portrait every day... now that's work.
