Capturing Life's Fleeting Moments…

Tilt July 15, 2008

By now you probably noticed that I’m lacking models who feel like coming over after work when I suddenly feel like I’m in a picture-taking mood so I practice on myself. I’m a good model because I’m quiet, patient, and don’t complain to myself. LOL

Yes, it’s was a head tilting day for me!  For most of them I put the camera on the tripod and extended it as tall as it would go and stood almost beneath the camera (pointed down at me).  I guess I wanted a “giant head” effect (just kidding LOL!).

  1. great set of you…I like the bronzing one, the last one and the 1st textured one the very best. It’s a great way to practice…using yourself as the model. Your eyes stand out in all of them and you make an excellent model.

    Those look great. I love trying different edits – in the end I can never decide which I like the best, lol. What camera are you using?

  3. Mike Palmer Says:

    I am going with the smile this time – You look good in bronze – nice edit

    I love your eyes in this pics….by the 5th and 6th pic my neck would have been killing me tilting it that much!! LOL

    second texture and last shot. Those perhaps are my two favs….but, as always, great series!

    And, I just can’t get over the difference adding texture can make with an image. I continue to shake my head in amazement.

    Nice shots Jen! The 5th is my favorite.

    Dito what Mike said. So when you do these self portraits do you say to yourself – Right there, right there that looks good – don’t move – work it baby work it – give me a smile – thats it, thats it…nice … hold it right there.:)
