Silly Self Portraits

I'm not a fan of having my picture taken -- for various reasons. However, as part of a photography challenge at this week, I decided that since I AM on the design team, it's probably a good thing to try and participate. So, I decided to have some fun, dig through my costume closet and ... smile/smize for the camera!

I call this series:

Gettin' Wiggy With It*
Self Portrait: Gettin' Wiggy With It

*Why yes, it is a play on the Will Smith song Gettin' Jiggy With It, thanks for noticing! ^_-

I love these! How did you take them, the colors are so vivid!

Reva (aha, I had to track you down! ^_^), I took these very clumsily! My backdrop is fabric from my stash (I knew it was good for something, because I am certainly not sewing anything with it right now!), and set up a tripod about 2 feet in front of me (enough so I could stretch my hand out to focus the shutter on the timer). Oh, yes, I used the timer, so I could take these without looking like I'm taking my own photo. I used natural light -- window on the side, you can probably see, but not direct light.

I did tweak the lightness some in Photoshop, but, truth is, the colors are so vivid because the wigs are so vivid! Honestly! *LOL*

Purple is cool.

Too fun! I love how each has such a distinct personality.

Those are fabulous! Purple and red are my favorite. ^_^
