Self-Portraits

I take a lot of self-portraits.  First, photos of people tend to be a lot more interesting than photos of just about anything else.  I’m a person, so that counts.  Plus, I’m always around.  I also think posing myself has helped me a lot in figuring out angles, shadows, etc. for photographing other people.  Still, it does make me feel a bit narcissistic.

When I first started doing this, I only showed the pretty photos – the ones where I thought I looked good.

But that gets boring really quickly.  Now I find myself making all kinds of ridiculous faces at myself and at the camera.  To get the image on the right here, this scene took place:

George: “What are you doing in there?”
Me: “I’m laughing so the photo looks natural.”

Is this a waste of time?  Am I totally ridiculous?  I guess I’ve answered that one too.
