52 Weeks of Me: Week 9 (Shadow)

Cara and Jessie's theme for this week was "Shadow." I tried to snap a couple shots outside, but none of them turned out the way I wanted. Then, as I was getting ready for a wine tasting we were going to last night, I spotted a patch of sun coming in from Tyler's window. I only had one shade drawn and the rest of the room was on the darker side. The exposure turned out even better than I thought it would because the area around the patch of light looked more black in the preview than it really was.

52 Weeks of Me: Week 8 (Zero In)

Cara and Jessie's theme for this week was "Zero in." I had initially thought I was going to take a picture of my feet slightly resting on a scale and focus on the "zero" on the scale. Then I saw the lack of nail polish on my toes and I didn't feel like painting them (again, because I wait until the last minute) so I decided to go with something else. I was holding my lens cap and noticed that the way I was holding it sort of resembled a zero (a stretch, I know). Haha. And then the roundness of the lens cap formed the shap of an "O," in addition to the "o" in Nikon. So in the end, below is the shot I ended up capturing.

52 Weeks of Me: Week 7 (Profile)

Taking a profile shot of ourselves was Cara and Jessie's "52 Weeks of Me" theme this week. Nothing like waiting until the last minute again! I snapped this shot a couple of hours ago by our dining room window...the only place that had some decent lighting. Check out the others' shots in the Flickr pool here.

52 Weeks of Me: Week 6 (At Arms Length)

"At Arms Length" was Cara and Jessie's theme this week. I honestly thought it was going to be easier. I kept trying to hold the camera out at different angles, but I was having a hard time keeping my arms steady. I took this shot while visiting family this weekend, and of course I had to bring the heaviest lens to attempt this! Then, when I finally was able to steady the shot, I would check the viewfinder and see that my facial expressions looked weird. I ended up snapping the below shot in my last attempt. It was first thing in the makeup and hair not done. But it was one of the few with a more natural expression. Did I mention yet that I despise taking pictures of myself? :) Someone tell me why I signed up for this torture! Haha. Check out the others in the Flickr pool here.
