Self portrait 1

February 07, 2021  •  Leave a Comment

I am on a mission to use myself and to use myself up!  I've made myself my own model for as many years as I can recall and I've always hated it. I think it's time to embrace it.  I mean, I know of several artists who paint, draw or photograph themselves.  That said, it's like listening to your voice in a recording -- hate it!

 

When I get a crazy idea, I'm there in the moment.  If I could get someone to pose for me, usually they stare blankly and the subject fades off. Or, they want the "masterpiece" and they want to tell you how to shoot it.  Nobody ever sued themselves for a bad photograph and I have taken many. I've given away as many costumes as I continue to collect. Can you imagine the stares I would get in this get up in this setting? Photoshop.

 

 I have promised myself that I would never, ever do this again. Lesson: be careful about promises made and promises kept.  For the moment, old, past tense Renee can do this all day long with older photos. Skills are a little rusty, but the time to circle back at it seems to be here again.
