I haven't had a lot of experience with self portraits but the friend I usually count on as a model was unavailable (and I couldn't talk anyone else in to the required application of make-up lol) so I had to try one for this challenge. I actually had quite a bit of fun with this. Learned a lot, laughed a lot (you should have seen some of my earlier over-the-top make-up job shots! They are safely deleted out of existence so no one can ever use them against me, hahaha). Didn't know much about Cindy Sherman prior to this challenge but she is an amazingly talented lady and I'm glad to have learned about her.

Thank you so much to everyone for all the VERY kind comments and for the votes. I appreciate it very much.

+1 to Tangy's comment. I'd do self portraits all the time if I had that face!

Mary Ann, this is a gorgeous, grainy, cinematic photo and you are so beautiful! At the first glance I thought it's young Meryl Streep!

Great shot. Something about it makes me think of "The Birds" black and white movie.

Strong movie still type entry like how you positioned your hands. The background is just odd enough and out of place with the way you're dressed. Well done, good luck.
