I’ve been cooped up in the house for the day since the promised snow storm finally hit Omaha. School was cancelled, so I’ve had the day at home to fiddle around with my camera. I decided to take some self-portraits, and found it quite challenging for several reasons. I’m still working on the technical aspects of my camera, so trying to get the timer set and the lens focused was exceptionally difficult. I’m hoping to dig up some articles so I can better navigate that piece. I’ve also struggle with body-image issues most of my life, so repeatedly taking photos of myself isn’t something I’m usually excited about. After lots of attempts and fiddling and uttering of swear words, I managed to get a few good shots.
It was nice to edit some photos of just me for once. I was almost forced to compliment myself both on the image and how I looked. Sometimes it’s nice to just give yourself some praise and love.
