Challenge: Before And After Self Portrait (Advanced Editing VII*)
Collection: Portfolio

I hate doing self portraits. Going back and forth between sitting down, chimping, running back, chimping. bleh.

And then there's the cat who thinks he should be in every picture. :)

Maybe I should figure out how to tether so I don't have to go back and forth?

And if I looked like Samantha, that would help. :)

I first thought of before and after vampire stuff, but that would cost money at the costume store. I also thought clown, but same thing -- money. Then I thought Cinderella. That's why sleeping on the one shoe.

I don't wear heals anymore, so I didn't have interesting shoes. If my daughter was here instead of college, I would have had a glass slipper!! Well, silver prom dress shoe with a "glass" heal.

After awhile, got a headache from squishing my face while "sleeping" on the shoe.

But it was worth it -- usually my self portraits (recognizable ones, at least) land in the 5.xs. I was at 7.0 until the last day, now it's down a tad to 6.8, but it's still awesome for a selfie!!!!

Huge thanks for all the comments and the fav. :D

Wendy, you are the Queen of light! It's so warm and beautiful, that you can make faces as much as you want - it still looks like a fairy-tale...

You are hilarious. Creative idea well executed. As I go through these there are plenty of abstract before/after concepts. This one is refreshingly clear.
