Group DescriptionOf Me is for us, the photographers. We are all out there taking pictures of the world as we see it. The tragedy is that as we do so, even though we become part of that world through our photography, we are left out of the picture. Literally. This group is for us, for us to share the photos where we are an essential part of the not just the process, but the image itself.
My Shadow - Often we notice our shadow - as a friend, as a spy, as an intruder, as a playmate, as tall as a building. I often can't resist it - nature's projection of us onto the environment.
Reflections - Reflections are everywhere and I know we've all done it - taken our picture in the mirror or reflected in nature or any of an infinite number of other situations. Sometimes its because we want to show we were there, we were part of that moment. Other times it may be an accident... we didn't notice because we were inthralled with the subject. Still, other times, we just want to be the subject. What subject could you possibly know more about? And since we're normally behind the lens instead of in front of it, we're often left out - hey we need pictures for our profiles, right?
Self-Portraits - One of the more difficult things to obtain is a great self-portrait photograph of oneself. Set that camera on timer and try to jump in the photo. I'd love to see what you all come up with.
I hope you all enjoy this group. Its for you. There's something powerful about a photographer who deliberately steps into his/her own picture, something bold, and something special.
