Self Portrait Challenge – Collection Six

With this project coming to a close, I just want to say what a blast it has been. I’ve had a wonderful time manipulating my appearance and expressing myself through these images, and I hope you guys have enjoyed viewing them. I highly recommend taking on the challenge yourself –   it forces you to think beyond the normal “selfie” mentality and will hopefully increase your creativity and yield some great photos. I’ll probably do the challenge again before the year is out, but we’ll see. Fingers crossed! 🙂

Twenty Seven. “True Love”



Twenty Eight. “Essence”



Stay tuned for the last entries of the challenge – they should be posted shortly!
