I admit it: I was quite taken with POTW Korri Leigh Crowley's self-portraiture. I had been thinking about self-portraits as a contest category, but seeing Korri's variety and creativity sealed the deal.
So what the heck -- let's give it a shot (so to speak). Pretty much anything goes -- you can take an arms-length photo of yourself, a reflected image, a funny picture. You can wear a mask, take a photo of your shadow, or shoot a body part other than your face (but keep it clean).
> Some part of your body must be in the photo.
> Remember the storytelling part of photography and make your photo revelatory about yourself. Are you curious, experimental, pensive, silly, hungry, a birdwatcher, a runner, a parent, a butcher, a baker, a candlestick maker? Try to capture an image that will tell viewers something about you.
You can dig into your archives this month, but please consider shooting something new.
