self portraits can be hard. i love them, love myself, love love love, but..
they can be even harder when all you’ve got is a plastic camera and an arm that’s only 2 and a half feet long.
even after rigging both my holga 120 & 135 with long, home-made “shutter releases” (out of some wire, some hemp rope, a whole shitload of duct tape) that i tie to my toe and yank to go click, being the girl behind & in front of the camera can have you running in circles.
so it’s always nice when i can find a model open minded enough not only to shoot exclusively on film, but one who’s also open to experiment.
