Back in February, during our Radiate Sessions weekend, the amazingly talented Viv McMaster led us all on a self portrait photo walk. With her guidance those couple of hours of experimenting with self portraiture, and looking into the lens with kindness (have you ever done that? TRY IT!), became a big part of my reclaiming my confidence.
Using just our iPhones, Viv led us through several prompts. It was the most fun to frolic about, experiment with shooting into the sun and take a whole bunch of shots using the Gorillacam app (it’s like a self timer for your iphone camera).
Throughout the day, I felt the feeling of being about 10 years old – playing on the beach, experimenting with different prompts, angles, iphone photo apps, self timer play. It freed me up, big time. Since returning home, I’ve been experimenting a big more with self portraits, and I can feel how healing, fun, creative, and important it is. It about seeing ourselves differently, kindly, and having fun. Viv says it’s about being our own beloved. Love that. And so profoundly TRUE!
That’s Viv. Isn’t she cute? Thank you, Viv! Check out Viv’s site – it’s full of all sorts of goodness. And may she inspire you to be your own beloved 🙂
PS: I’d like to offer a warm welcome to my sponsors for May. They will giving away all sorts of goodies during our big giveaway party later this month, but in the meantime you can check out the left sidebar for their gorgeous ads or click on their links below. Thank you, sponsors!
