I feel like I'm in a bit of photo slump lately. 2009 was an okay year... but, with all the excitement of becoming a parent, I wasn't very experimental in my work. So, for 2010, I'm going to make a super strong effort to experiment, improve and develop as photographer.
This spring, since I'm cooped up inside anyway, I'm going to once again practice the self portrait. This will coincide with an event the Plains Art Museum is sponsoring to promote their Individual to Icon show. Here is the info:
The Portrait Project – Inspired by a few of the pieces in the Individual to Icon show, we are asking anyone and everyone to submit portraits to a Flickr group at http://www.flickr.com/groups/plainsartmuseumportraitproject. They can be amateur or professional and in any medium – in fact, the more diversity of images, the better. The goal, basically, is to get as many portraits as possible in one place. We may use the whole pile of images for a poster or some kind of installation at the Gala. Be sure to post any portrait contest images you submit! We’ll keep the group open until some time after the Spring Gala
So, here is round one of self portraits. Not so good this time... but, one has to start somewhere.
