Interesting, or not? self-potraits. Or how about, simply potraits of persons, anyone we like?

Id like a SELF portrait challenge. A little hard on the annonominity(sp?) but I would still like it. I have done 2 self portraits in my life. And both are on here. One is my profile pic, LOL. and the other is an absolutely aweful shot I did for the 7 deadly sins challenge. I was actually quite proud of the shot, but I look at it and it scares me cause it is NOTHING like me at all. I think I need a shot that shows ME in all my greatness...ha ha ha

Out of the top 10, only one guy has posted in the last 2 months and only 2 have posted in 2003. I think it's time to revisit this one.

I'd like to see another Self Portraits challenge. I wasn't around for the first one and would love to try it this time around. Perhaps with a twist like showing how we really see ourselves or how others see us.

You should think *very carefully* about what you're letting yourself in for before making suggestions like this ; )

I had suggested a challenge a few months back that resulted in "reflections without mirrors"... what I meant by my suggestion was that we do self portraits that required us to be in a reflection... but that we didn't use a mirror as that reflection. We did something similar in class the first month of first year when peoples' imaginations were still untainted and we got some awesome stuff. I think it's worth a try.

Also this way some anonymity can still be kept because our faces will likely be distorted.

Sounds great but can I hit the gym for a couple of months? I stopped smoking a few months ago, so I gained a few pounds.

I love this idea, and I don't think it'll affect anonymity much, I doubt many people will be pouring through the profiles trying to match the photos. Although it's been done before, it's been awhile, let's do it again!

I've used up all my self-portrait ideas already :/

Maybe we could all do um up prison style. One frontal, one profile. ;)

I would love to have a selfportrait contest. It would be great to see some good photos of the great people here on this site.

I'm like Jacko, give me a couple of months to shed some of my "winter weight" hahahahahahhahahahahahah

I would like to see this revisted as well.

Is this for open or members?
If it's open, think twice about whether you want to be scared that much - coz I might enter!

LOL! Yuh! Maybe in the fall, when I have had the summer to get svelt. :)

If I wait for that to happen we should hold this one off for a couple of years.
It ain't gonna have my BODY in it!!!

If you are overweight do it in multiple panorama shot :-)

If anyone has the chance to get a copy of the current issue of Photo Insider it has an article on Anne Arden McDonald entitled Self-Portraits, Adventures & Dreamscapes. Her self portrait is so unusual and lets the imagination wonder. It was done in an old abandoned house wallpaper and plaster falling off the walls and ceiling, and she is laying in the corner in the nude covered with a very thin layer of what appears to be cheeseclothe or gauze. If anyone can duplicate it I'd give them a 10.

How about "Self Portrait...from 40 feet"?
05/02/2003 09:23:01 PM · #21
Oh, if this suggestion is going to be taken seriously into consideration as the next challenge, pls make it an OPEN Challenge! :P That way I could show you all my beer belly too! LOL

Very cruel idea, I think.... I will be the one with bags under my eyes and pudding in my hair. =) Actually, I think it would be fun contest. I think there needs to be a theme with it - I like the ideas of how others see you, or how you want to be etc.... I wasn't around for the first self portrait contest, so it would be fun to revisit it!

Great idea about the theme! I think creative spins are excellent!
05/03/2003 02:17:33 AM · #24
Being a new-comer, I have no idea how the challenges are decided, but I'm getting excited, hope this suggestion will be considered, and placed into the OPEN challenge :)

I'm all for this challenge! I think there'd be so many neat pictures to look at. I just hope that if they do this one... it goes into the open challenge.
