I've been lurking around I [heart] faces for a few weeks now, waiting for there to be a challenge that I felt confident I could participate in. I'm trying to put myself out there a little more and work outside my comfort zone and that means trying to participate in two contests a month. (Please don't quote me on that. Life sometimes interferes with ambition.)
This week's theme is textures, so I decided to use a self-portrait I took recently.
f/4, 1/60 sec, iso 200, 18mm on 18-55 kit lens, Canon Rebel XT, pop-up flash
stock from dying beauty stock (my beloved Clara, whom I wholeheartedly endorse)
I don't usually wear makeup or have my hair down or go without my glasses so it's kind of difficult to recognize myself in this photo. I may need to do this more often though, as my Facebook friends seem to like it.
