- Beastie Boys, Professor Booty
I know it's not polite to toot your own horn, but holy hell do I ever love the way today's shots turned out! I was totally inspired by this shot, and knew I wanted to do my own version with blues instead of pinks. Of course, in post processing I wound up falling in love with this shot, which is decidedly more muted. Whatever. Don't you just love those days where shoots go even better than expected and you totally feel like you rocked it out? This is one of those days for me. So let me enjoy it!! Ha!
That said, there were a bunch of outtakes that I really liked too, so I'm posting them in the comments. Let me know what you think of them. And as a side note, when I started my self portrait 365 project, I wasn't sure I could handle it. I mean, I'm self conscious of the way I look and usually hate pictures of me. So how was I going to do a whole year of it, right? But what I've discovered in the course of doing these daily self portraits, is that I love the way I can totally transform my look for different shots. Wigs, makeup, angles, processing...it's become this total obsession of mine. I love making myself look like somebody else, while still retaining the bits of me that I love. This shot is such a good example of that.
Ok, I'll stop rambling about how much I love these shots. Ha. If you read this far, you must really like me a lot! ;)
