Beyond the selfie: Self-portraiture photography (online event)

No photographer's image portfolio would be complete without that iconic self-portrait. Plus, it is a good excuse for a COVID-19 friendly event, while we wait for the world to return to a photo-club-excursion-friendly environment :-) Many of history's greatest photographers have included their own self-portrait into their image collections. To many, they might look like a casual selfie. But when observed more closely, they often tell a story. For this event, we're asking you to take some time for yourself and create a self-portrait that captures you and the essence of your photography. What would the back-cover photo of your future photography book look like? Now is as good time as any to take this iconic photo. Following this ONLINE EVENT, our photo club will periodically share the self-portraits along with a link to your photography portfolio for everyone to explore. Hence, UPLOAD your self-portrait to the gallery of this event, and include the link to your website/portfolio in the image description. This video is a great first step in feeling comfortable on the other side of your camera's lens: https://youtu.be/gTq_syWSeSI
