64/365 - self portrait

So, I guess its time for a self portrait. Without a shutter release, this is a bit challenging. I set up the drum, autofocused, then switched to manual focus. Set the timer, then run around the camera and drum. sit down, get positioned, and I hope I made it in ten seconds without bumping the tripod. Whew. Get up, look at the picture, make adjustments and do it again.
On the last photo I stuck a halogen flashlight inside the drum to light the head.


  1. Really beautiful, my friend. You got the lighting perfect. You are georgeous.

    Can't wait to see you today.

  2. Thanks, Paige. I can't wait to see you either. I do enjoy our little outings.

  3. WOW! I love love love love the picture of you playing the drums (#1)! These had to be a challenge to take and get the focus right. You did a spectacular job!!! All of them are cool, but I love the look on your face on the first one. You look so focused!
    I had fun with you girls today and can't wait for next weekend! (This time I'll remember my camera! :)
