Week 1 - Self Portrait


It's 2016, a new year! New beginnings, new years resolutions.... clichés.

Clichés that I buy into though. I do love a good New Year's resolution. So, this year, one of my resolutions is to post every week on this blog. I am going to do it with the help of this website, which has a weekly photography challenge. I will then share my photo(s) on here, along with whatever weekly ramblings I have. I may well make other posts too, but these are the main, scheduled thing. I will probably (hopefully) upload them every Sunday.

2015 was a year of self-discovery for me, but not really in a very shareable way. It was unsettling, in a good way though. 2016 will probably be just as busy, but hopefully in a more settled way.

I used this week's challenge in a slightly different way than was suggested. A self-portrait is usually about capturing your essence in an artistic manner. I decided to use it to give myself confidence about being in photographs. Because, while I love taking photographs, I usually really don't like it when I'm in them.

So this challenge to me was more of an internal one, to prove to myself that I could look not just pretty, but beautiful in a photo. To look at a photo of me and be able to think to myself that I honestly look good.

And while quite a few of them were very silly, it was fun, and you know what? In at least one of them, I think I do look beautiful.
