Self Portraits from New Places

12

Take some self portraits, but this time have your camera somewhere different!

Self portraits are fun to do, and I for one really like trying new things to make my self portraits new and exciting. One easy way to do this is to put the camera in a new place rather then just in the open air.

Try putting it into the washing machine, the fridge, the cupboard, the closet, a drawer, in a box, it doesn’t really matter where as long as it’s new and if it can look like it’s capturing a part of your everyday life even better!

    Self to the World: The Photography of Leanne Surfleet

    A self-portrait may take root in confidence, extreme shyness or alternate bouts of each. Leanne Surfleet goes through this kind of fluctuation when the camera is all eyes. The attraction—as far as we’re concerned—is the mix of uncertainty and a kind of quiet poise. And here and there, a flash of skin that is more a mystery than full-on revelation. Even Surfleet’s portraits of other people have the same hushed invite, as if to say questions are encouraged. There we took our cue.
