Last month I launched a new feature on the blog which unveiled the first new self-portrait I have taken in a long time. Despite a general disdain for being on the other side of the camera, I actually had a lot of fun with it and decided that I would turn it into a monthly project – creating a new self-portrait each month this year. Thus the newest addition to my blog – Selfies- was born. Welcome to the second installment.
This pink backdrop had been sitting in my studio for a few weeks for an upcoming series of shoots and I simply could not resist playing around with it a bit early for one of these portraits, so I broke out the fancy duds, one of my favorite ties, and my new glasses (I love Warby Parker). It is certainly a more formal departure from my usual hoodie/black wool cap/band tee combo that serves as my go-to studio outfit most days in the winter. This is more along the lines of what I rock when going to meetings and those occasions when I need to be a bit dressier. I am planning next month’s portrait already and I might even have a new portrait to share alongside it that a new friend recently made of me. I am really starting to look forward to this new project each month – stay tuned for more.
