30-Day Self Portrait Challenge

SV_Selfie Day 1

I love reading A Beautiful Mess, and I could not resist taking up their latest challenge: picture-snapping myself for 30 days!

Instead, I hope to learn more about my camera, lighting, angles, composition, and colour, etc. and become a better photographer in the process.

If you are keen to take up their challenge (with me), do yourself a favour and read Elsie’s 5 Tips for Better Self-Potraits before you get started. Here is day 1…
