Throwing out the rule book

19 October, 2011

I had been having fun hooping.  Mark took some photos of me hooping (that I posted yesterday), but I wanted to get a self portrait of me hooping.

I googled taking self portraits and read all the hints and tips.  They almost all suggested setting up a tripod and using a timer or remote to take the photo.

Then I ignored all the sound advice I had been given and went outside.

No I’m never going to grace the cover of Vogue magazine.  No my photo is not going to win any awards for composition or subject matter.  But it’s me.  It’s a real photo of me, doing something I enjoy, and I think it shows.  It’s not a posed photograph (yes I do hold my arms at weird angles when I hoop, although not usually one above my head!).  It’s me, hooping :-).  And you know what, I don’t care what anyone thinks of it (in a nice way, of course).
