Too good not to share - Self portraiture edition
Self-portraiture - Many web sites, artistes, and bloggers advocate taking pictures of oneself, not only as a form of artistry and self-expression,but to improve camera creativity and most importantly to become comfortable with your own body, that vessel of self. I've always felt uncomfortable with it - a mixture of vanity, fear of exposure and insecurity. Which is why I'm trying now to take daily or at least weekly self-portraits, thanks to a little encouragement from Muse! This is like therapy for phobias - confronting it head on, crazy hair bangs and all. However, my self-portraiture skills are limited to holding out my arm, snapping and hoping the picture is at least in focus. Can anyone recommend a good concise resource for improving self-portraiture? Clearly I at least need a cheap tripod or something! One of these days I am going to have to become a real photographer.
Courage to Fly blog hop - Check it out - these are the sorts of blog posts I love to find where creative people go deep.
Tribal Writer - I stumbled across this writing/creative/entrepreneur blog and immediately resonated. I love that she touches on the inner struggle as a writer instead of dry, prescriptive posts like "10 ways to improve dialogue". Not that we don't all need those. But some days what I need is someone to tell me to be brave and soldier on.
And let's go into the weekend with a little silly, okay? Jane Austen Fight Club - freaking hi-larious. Yes, more Jane. If you've already seen this, I apologize. If you haven't, you must.
