Selfies


Self-Portrait 1


For quite a while now I've been wanting some new headshots of myself. The pictures I'd been using for my profile picture here on Blogger and my about me page were two years old, so I though it was time for an update. But the problem was, taking pictures with the timer was difficult. The camera can't auto focus when the timer is being used and running back and forth from behind and in front of the camera is tiring.

So I finally got a wireless remote for my Sony. It's very simple, just two buttons: the shutter release and a shutter release with a two second delay. It focuses before snapping the photo and was only $7 on Amazon. And I love it!

I was finally able to get some beautiful headshots that I love. The forest area next to our house made a perfect background for some simple and classy portraits.

Which shot is your favorite?

    1. Aww, thanks! This hairstyle is really easy and I wear it almost every day. Here's how you do it:
      1. Take a small section of hair by your part and separate it into two pieces.
      2. Twist the two sections (switch sides) towards the middle of your head.
      3. Add in some hair into the front section, then repeat the twist.
      4. Keep repeating steps 2 and 3 until you reach the back of your ear. Twist the two pieces of hair until they reach the middle of the back side of your head.
      5. Repeat on the other side of your head. Gather both sides in the middle of the back side of your head and secure with a hair band.

  3. I love the 2nd one - your smile is positively luminous! I can't believe how much you've grown, I still kind of think of you as the little girl I met when we moved into The Springs 12 years ago, but you are such a lovely young woman now! Thanks for sharing your talents, God has really blessed you with a beautiful gift!

    1. Thank you, Sam! Yes, since the remote makes it so much easier, I'm hoping to take some selfies a bit more often than before.
