day 6: me

this is me and um, i’m sorry.  gee, after doing so many self-portraits, i was tired of looking at myself, but here i am. i threw on this hat as i often do when i don’t feel like combing my hair. usually it’s a baseball cap, but i decided on this one.  i used one side light to my right and natural lighting from a window for this photo.  made some edits in lightroom, was trying to make this look like an oil painting, but i forgot i suck at post-processing. i was actually in some pain in this photograph, but managed to fake a smile so i don’t look like a bank robber. instead of saying cheese, i said the word money, of which i have none of.

  1. Valerie, you are SO CUTE, girl!

    What a GREAT face you have! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the hat!

    And I gotta say, you don’t look in pain.

    Very interesting to read about the lighting. It looks very natural!

    This cracked me up….
