For the last couple of days, I’ve been trying to take new self-portraits and it hasn’t been easy. It’s even harder than I thought it would be. Apparently, I have a lot to learn about making an interesting self-portrait.

I’ve been trying to get some new self-portraits for my website because the photos on the website are from 2016. And I don’t feel they really represent me as a person and as an artist.

I need to figure out some way to ‘spice ’em up’ without making them seductive, because that’s not what my site is about.

I must say, I wish I had someone like Sorelle Amore to come to take them for me and give me directions 😀

At the end of the video, you’ll know if I managed to take some more…fun self-portraits. But I will show you some of the boring ones as well because I know I’m not alone in this. I bet you’ve taken some boring shots of yourself as well.

I included some of the boring and some of the bad ones in the video if you want to see those. There are about 50 more but they’re along similar lines, so I didn’t add those.

There is also some self-critique of the photos in the video but I’m not being harsh on myself. I did that to learn what to improve and to be transparent about my struggle with this. 

The best self-portrait photos I took

Are self-portraits as hard for you as it is for me?
