Many of you know that we photographers are behind the camera for a reason. The other side of the camera is a position where we rarely want to be. However, sometimes it is necessary to switch it up in order to grow as an artist and to learn about yourself as a photographer. Today at work I had some free time and took advantage of the equipment at my disposal. My gear was in the car, so I brought it in and decided to put it to use again. It was a self portrait session that was self entertaining. There will probably be more of these to come in the future but not before I get other individuals to take this position. Hope you dont mind looking at me for a little bit.......:cool:

There was a dust issue I didnt feel like messing with in the last image as you may notice. I hope the one image is not too offensive. It is just a feeling many of us have at one point or another. I thought by eliminating my face it would give the feeling a little shame. If it is too much feel free to remove it. Thanks for taking a walk through a few of the emotions I often feel. I doubt I am the only one with these feelings, so maybe you might find some entertainment in all of this.

Interesting set. I don't really have any particular favourites as they're all pretty good. Thanks for sharing.

Some more self portraits. Trying to find inspiration in myself I guess.

Dressed for the occasion. Notice the Pentax camera strap, thats on the K110d. I used the K10 for this picture. I always walk around with two cameras. Easier to turn on one camera than to get a new lens out of the bag, take the old lens off, switch caps, put on the new lens, and then put the old one away. Something should be said for convenience.
