Anyhoo, I was shopping with the boys all afternoon, and they were champs, but it was exhausting. It was a full day, and I was not looking my best, to say the least. But I thought, 'This is me right now - frazzled, messy-haired, baggy-eyed, tired, but happy and content.' And then I thought, 'But it looks like I just went into the bathroom and shot a picture of myself in the mirror with no thought put into it.' And then I was like, 'Yeah, that's because that's exactly what I did.'
So that's it. Not much to it. There is a tiny depth of field, though (note the cabinet is blurred while I'm in focus), proper exposure, and the use of the rule of thirds. There is not any contrast in lighting, though, even though I didn't use a flash. It is what it is, though. Next week I promise to put more thought into it. ;) And thank GOD I don't have to do another self-portrait until week 20. These wrinkles don't need to be all out there for the inter-world to see.
