The theme for Shoot & Edit this week is self portraits or couples. Since I've been sick, I wasn't going to participate this week. But I am feeling better today and actually took a shower and even fixed my hair and put on some makeup, so I figured what the heck.
I played around with my new Nikon D3100 and my 18-55mm lens, but wasn't able to use my remote with it (bummer!). I did take a few with the self-timer, with Alex's help on the focus. But I didn't like the way they turned out. Mostly because of the crappy lighting.
So I moved our recliner chair over so it was in front of our big picture window and draped a white sheet over in order to get as much light as possible on this gloomy, rainy day. (I probably should have ironed the sheet first, but oh well.) :) I switched to my Nikon D40 and snapped a bunch of photos using the remote.
Here are a couple of my results ...
I included the histogram for those of you who know how to read them. I'm still learning, so I'm not sure what this means. :) Although the photo looks a bit underexposed to me.
The fun thing about having 2 cameras is I can photograph myself with one while holding the other. This is my comfort zone. Behind the camera.
The exposure looks a little better on this one.
Like many others, I feel uncomfortable taking photos of myself. I usually end up with some goofy, fake smile. Or my head cocked at some awkward angle. I'm not going to post those. :)
Head over to Jill's for some other great SOOC shots.
See you back here on Thursday with my edits. Have a fabulous week everyone!
