The Truth Comes Out...

I was told I had to share the truth of the self portrait for Cheryls class with you all!

I tried various poses and positions for my self portrait, including the photo in the mirror, and holding the camera at arms length and shooting on auto. But I just wasn't completely satisfied with any of these images.


Then I had the idea that I could use a stunt double! So Scooby-Doo kindly took some time off from his hectic schedule to be my stand in. ...

In fairness to him, he did a great job, and I'm grateful to him for his assistance.



So having composed the shot and focusing it, with the timer set, I sent Scoob's flying and jumped into place.....

I'm pretty happy that I managed to look like I'm all relaxed and in control of the situation. Just goes to show, looks can be deceiving ;-)

Wow Audrey, that is a brilliant idea using a stunt double! Thanks a million for sharing that one! The photo is gorgeous, you look very relaxed which is really difficult to do when you are taking the photo yourself :-)
