Self-Portraits with the iPhone

Monday, October 22nd, 2012 4

Are you more comfortable behind the lens rather than in front of it? Most photographers are, and I’m noticing that most women are, too. But what gets lost or what is missing if YOU aren’t in the photo? If you aren’t part of all the scenes you’ve worked hard to capture as memories for yourself? I’ve learned that oh-so-much goodness can come from being brave and delving into the work of self-portraits.

I strongly encourage you to try taking some self-portraits. Even if you never share them, upload them to Instagram or Flickr, or show them to a soul. Take some. Play. See yourself differently. I promise it will be worth it.

I’m musing on self-portraits and using mobile photography to capture yourself over at Mortal Muses today. I hope you click through to check it out.
