Day 13

For the last 12 days I haven't posted a single portrait, when I think about it, I don't think there is even a person in any of the photos so far. I find it a little hard photographing people, it still takes me a little while finding the right settings, then the background isn't right or the light. Then they want to see the photo immediately, it stresses me out a little, but it's something I have to work on.

I also had this idea to do a self portrait about once a month. I'm going to buy a good tripod soon and a remote, that might make it easier.
Anyway, to the point, today I post a semi self portrait, it's just my eyes hehe. It's not the best of photos as I took it in my car (while waiting on red light), but I like it. The colors are a little off but I opened the little mirror over the driver's seat to get a little light.

Great idea to take a portrait once a month and I love the perspective on this one. I also have trouble taking photos of people and am much happier photographing plants and animals.

As I also posted on your Flickr-account, really love this picture. Think you are able to convey a feeling more than anything else.

Where do you prefer comments - here or on Flickr?

I love this. Self-portraits are hard for me to do. A partial sp might be a way to get started.
