Self Portrait - 12 Days of Chrismas photography course

This is it then - the Self Portrait for the 12 Days of Christmas course with Cheryl Johnson.

I really hate photos of myself and am always disappointed in what I see! I took about 12 photos by using the self timer on my Panasonic Lumix TZ7 and balancing it on my window sill in the kitchen (becuase it has the best natural light).

I have edited in Picasa by turning into black and white ( I look MUCH better in black and white), putting a soft focus around the edges and them playing around with highlights and shadows etc. Its quite close up - scary huh?

Here are a few others that I felt Okay about - WHAT A POSER eh>


  1. WOW they are stunning, truly they are great and taking them yourself...well done, that is not easy :)

  2. Great! You have nice photograps to show.... unfortunately my photos never comes out beautiful, at least I feel so.

    Have fun !!!

  3. ooo I love photo #2 the laying down one, very natural looking.x
