I Heart Faces- Self Portrait entries



So this weeks challenge at I Heart Faces is a little different. It is SELF PORTRAIT. You have to take it while you are holding the camera. This is not the easiest thing to do especially when you have an SLR. Anyway, I am not super big on my looks these days but I did it anyway. The first is my self portrait Adult entry and the second is Self Portrait Kids entry (had to have a child in the photo with me). I didn't like too many of the adult ones I tried to do. I chose this one because the one thing on my face I like are my eyes and you can really see the color of them in the picture. So anyway- here it is:

Here is my Kids entry. I used a medium Vanilla action on it. I like it in the black and white. My 6 year old son is in the shot with me. He is such a goofball. You should have seen all the ones I took. Most of them he was trying to lick me! I think this one is cute.
Thaks for looking and if you want to see more great self portraits, make sure you click on the buttons above!

LOL! about the licking! I have 3 little boys, so I know exactly how that goes... How many ever you had to take, it was worth it. I love that photo of you and your son!!!

I love the picture of you with your son. It really captures the playful relationship between the two of you. I also love it in black and white. It's classic.
