It’s been a while since I’ve played around with self portraits so I decided to have some fun with the bathroom mirror last night! It kind of looks like I’m scared of something (I wasn’t). I was just looking towards the light to get a nice light reflection in my eyes. I’ve been studying up on taking head shots recently – and that little glimmer of light in the eyes is very important! It prevents the subject from looking like they’re dead. I’m digging the diagonal lines here – and how the line from the tiles is repeated in the camera lens.
Anyway – I’ve been doing a little thinking this week and have decided that I’d like to bring a little order to my daily dish. Some days – I just don’t have much to say – but I do enjoy (and benefit from) the practice of writing every day. So here’s what I’m thinking… I’d like to have a couple days each week that are dedicated to certain topics. Like cheese for instance. I’d like to start doing one cheese-themed feature each week. That’ll keep me constantly tasting new cheeses and seriously, I mean… I can talk about cheese forever. So, starting tomorrow, I now dub Thursday as CHEESE DAY!
I have a couple ideas for some other possible topics, but we’ll start with cheese Thursdays and progress from there. See you tomorrow!
mmmmmmmmm…. cheese 🙂
