In The Picture – Self Portrait Project – 1/27/12 – Theme "A Piece of Me"

I am participating in a project with my Blogger friend “Urban Muser” and other participants in which each month we post different self portraits. The project is called “In The Picture”. We set our own personal goal for the number of pictures within a year we are going to take. I am aiming for “52” or “1” per week. She will post a new area of the body, subject or theme to focus on the first Friday of each month and then we Link up our pictures with everyone else on the last Friday of the each month. This will be a challenge and fun as I find taking a picture of myself has always been uncomfortable! Anyone else who might feel inclined to join the project (it’s free) can go to the following link for details: Urban Muser Blog – “In The Picture”

JANUARY 2012 – THEME #1 – “A PIECE OF ME” – To take a picture of any part of me!
This is my monthly submission for the Self Portrait project at “In The Picture” over at “Urban Muser” blog. I’ve slowly been mastering the tripod. Still having a little issue getting my camera on it. I keep getting the strap all caught up as I’m screwing it on the base! But I am getting a little better at all the little adjustments once it’s on there. Practice makes perfect! So far this has been a fun project and I’m getting some good ideas for future shots I would like to take. This is also a good project for me as to how I can edit pictures of family and friends in a flattering manner! 🙂
