I Gotta Be Me

I hate having my picture taken. Loath it actually. Perhaps that is why I am much more comfortable on the other side of the lens.

But today……

I had to practice some lighting. I have a job this week that will require lighting skills, and I needed practice. Yes, I could has HHBL to sit for these. He will be modeling for me later in the day, after his bike ride. But I wanted to set up the lights and at least experiment.

And the only person to experiment on was myself. And in the interest of always being an open book I will just put these out there, fat face, neck wattle, double chin, crazy hair and all.

Hopefully by Thursday I will have the head shot lighting basics down. And then the good Lord only knows where I will go.

And if you had to ask me which of these lovelies that I actually like……..

It would be #1.


  1. I LOVE THESE! I think #1 is awesome. And um your hair, we rarely get to see it, I love your hair!

  2. Like you, I hate to have my picture taken, too. Tramp 1 and I managed to be the only people that are not in the pictures taken at our family reunion! And yes, picture #1 is really nice!
