30 self portraits in 30 days

Hey guys, it’s been a while huh? I’ve been busy with a very special life project. Not ready to announce it yet so I’m keeping mum for now =)

For now, I wanted to share some work that been hiding deep in the abyss of my hard drive. It’s about time these pics saw the light of day!

Last August I gave myself a photo challenge to take 30 self portraits in 30 days.  Everyday I set up my camera, tripod, and remote in order to take my picture of myself in a different way. I had a blast creating new lighting set ups and exploring my town for different shots. Most are SLR pics, but a few are iPhone shots. For anybody thinking about doing it… just do it!  It was crazy crash course in lighting and photography.

You bet by the end the month I was so sick of taking my selfe.  There’s only so many ways to picture my face.  Man I definetely have an appreciation for all those selfie artists out there.

Hope you enjoy!
