2009 Challenge, Day 232: Half Self Portrait

Today is Thursday, August 20th, 2009. Today’s theme for the 2009 Challenge is HALF SELF PORTRAIT.

I’m a big fan of self portraits, even though I don’t take enough of myself. I also really like dramatic lighting, real close up, and generally odd looking self portraits.

Today, please take the extra few steps to use your tripod (or a stack of books on the kitchen counter), to get a nearly filled frame, self-portrait, of yourself. However, I’d like to see only half of your face. Of course the 3 examples here should completely explain.

Any questions? No? Good. Now go get to shooting!

Once you’re ready to submit your work to Flickr, you’ve got to do two important things. First, make sure you tag your photos correctly; “2009challenge″ and “2009challenge232“. Also, if you haven’t already, join the PhotoChallenge group on Flickr. Then, submit each day’s photo to the group’s pool.
