I am working on a project just now to take a self portrait. it is the current assignment for Camera School Creative in Practical Photography magazine. I have been finding it quite difficult to do, and have been much happier taking pictures of dogs. But the deadline is getting very close.
My problem is getting everything just right in the viewfinder while you are in front of the camera and not behind it! And the tutors on the course say – no editing of the picture on the computer: get it right in the camera.
Here is one of last night’s efforts, but I could not get away from hiding behind a dog – if you think you can hid behind such a little dog as Poppy. The real secret to this picture is Mary appearing in the garden and standing behind the camera. Poppy looked straight at her. Snap!
