This is my
very first official selfies (self portrait).
As you can see I'm not ready to put my face on blogland (yet), however, I'm showing you a significant part of me - ME Shadow. ;)
I've only been paying attention to shadows since I started to learn to draw and paint about 2 years ago. To paint / draw shadow of an object helps to create and express the three dimensions of the object. It is with this in mind that I started to look at shadows in a totally different way. I began to marvel how much information a shadow holds about the real object. Even abstract shadow shapes have whole new worlds reside in them. And of course, there's always Jung's famous Shadow Self.
And I have to say I quite enjoy the in the picture self portrait project. From one of the selfies I took for the project, I found one perfect for my dashboard photo. Yeah!
While I was taking these little selfies, I remembered all the wonderful comments I got from the photography of my sketchbook pages (links here & here). I realized that it was only natural that I wanted to expand my casual (i.e. no training) photography skills and horizon.
O.k. I'm LOVING this!
The selfies is for in the picture. Come join us for a wonderful journey through out the year! xxoo
