{whatever wednesday} — self.

23 Jan

it’s high time i shoot some more self-portraits.  the last time i did that was in 2010. and it’s very liberating and healthy for me to occasionally get in FRONT of the camera. it’s kind of an unspoken general rule – photographers don’t like being photographed. i don’t mind it sometimes, so long as i’m the one taking the pictures! 😉

i remembered this collection when i was organizing my files recently. sometimes i feel like about 86 personalities inside this tiny little physical form of a body.  i feel very introspective at the moment – so i thought i’d share these fotos which emulate just that.

New York City

these are all pre-hair-chop… but i’m thinking of growing it back out a bit again… we’ll see, that in-between phase is ultra-annoying…


i believe i look like my mama in this one!  miss you, judi…

New York City

hiding behind the lense – classic.

i love the “dr. jekyll and mr. hyde” look in my eyes in this one… totally represents how i’ve been feeling and what i’ve been going through…

another “duality” type foto… honoring my light and dark side…

i like how it looks like i have purple eyeshadow on… i have no idea why that is, i never wear eyeshadow and it’s just natural light… maybe it was a reflection from my aura 🙂  oh, and check out the heart-shaped catch-light on the right in my eye… sweet.

a personal fav.

as the saying goes, “the eyes are the window to the soul” … i see you.

    I’m not sure if I should compliment the model or the photograhper, so I’ll split the kudos equally.

      wow. thank you so much for the compliment, keith! i appreciate it — looking forward to playing around a bit more soon! do you ever do self-portraits? i was so hesitant for years to try it…

    These are great. I love the first photo and the one with the camera. Quite lovely.

    However, I saw this after the pastrami shot, and now I want a sandwich and chips, so arggh.
