self portraits

Last night I was tired but not sleepy.  Conferences do that to me.  Completely wear me out but excite me so much that I just can’t fall asleep.  Last night was one of those nights.

I have tried many brands of products and this is definitely the best I have used. Online pharmacy cialis? Through years of experience we know which medications work well and what price it the best for you.

So when I got back to my room from class, I noticed that the lighting in my room was really romantic and edgy.  So I decided to take some self portraits.  It was so much fun trying to get me in the frame without the camera showing at all.  Plus getting a good angle on my face so that I didn’t look harsh or old or baggy eyed.  I never succeeded on the baggy eye goal.  One day my insurance will pay to lift those droopy eye lids just so I can see.  Until then, I am stuck with droopy eyed pictures.

After I took them, I played around a bit in Lightroom.  By the way – I LOVE LIGHTROOM.  LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Let me know what you think…

    Amy! Wow! I am thinkin’ bout you and hoping that you are hangin’ in there. And by the looks of it…you are. I love your self-portraits! Such beautiful and soulful pics! I think this is YOUR TIME to thrive. I am so sorry to hear about your job going away. Yet, I think this might just be the most amazing thing that could have happened, even if it seems scary and daunting and all too sudden. And while I totally hear ya on the self-promotion piece, you have all the tools you need to move forward and take your next step in your career and life. You can do it! I get the sense that you are ready to step out of your comfort zone and draw upon your skills and passions. I am absolutely looking forward to reading more about your thoughts and plans! Sending good vibes your way… –Erin

    It is very difficult to make yourself smile when you are sitting alone in a hotel room with your camera. 🙂 I’ll have to try again another time to get more smiling ones.

    you’re gorgeous Amy! Love the idea of taking self-portraits. And your editing skills are amazing – although it doesn’t look like you needed any editing! 🙂
