I have been reading about a lot of monthly photography challenges online and thought I would give some a try. It seems like a great way to keep camera in hand and stretch yourself creatively, to think outside the box. There is a monthly theme challenge I am participating in, which I am also incorporating into my Project 365. That will be posted the 2nd of each month beginning in February. Another challenge is a monthly self portrait. Since I rarely seem to be in front of the camera this seemed like something fun to commit to. Of course once I have the baby I will need to use my creativity to take some photos from the shoulders up for awhile, but maybe it will motivate me to get back in shape – a win win?
Here is something I took today using one of the 3 mirrored closets in our new home. I really want to try another self portrait using the tripod so I’m not holding the camera in the photo, but I just didn’t have the time today to set that all up. I also wanted to make sure I have a self portrait of me and the baby bump. Since this is our last pregnancy I’m trying to capture some of the little moments that I tend to take for granted.
