Self Portrait: Me, Myself and Drew

Wow. Self portraits are tough. I do not enjoy being photographed, even by myself. I was really dreading this day actually because our camera specifically states in the manual that it adds 50 pounds when used for self portraits. I tried every trick to bypass this unfortunate feature including overexposure, blurry action shots, and photographing myself from above. Ah, you should see the lengths I went to. Oh well, at least I became well acquainted with the self timer workings on the Nikon. I ended up snapping this one with one hand. You should see the hundreds of photos I deleted. Wait, no you shouldn't.

Also, I set up a Flickr group for anyone who wants to add pictures that way. You have to have a Flickr account but it is free and pretty easy. Let me know if you have any trouble accessing or joining because I've never set up a group myself before and I'm not sure if I did it right. Thanks to everyone participating!

I like the picture! I agree...hard subject to shoot! I experimented a bit myself.
