Little Ole Me

 

Valerie with CS Perfect Portrait 3 for web logo

 

I don’t like taking pictures of myself.   I spent over an hour  getting this one and then in post processing I needed Coffeeshop Rita and the action Perfectportrait 3 to get rid of a lot of wrinkles.   I am participating in Darcy’s Project 52 where each week we are to contribute a set photo. This week was self-portrait.   Next week is shadows.

Excellent picture. I need to get a better and more recent photo of myself. It goes to the top of my list and then gets back down to the bottom.

Have a nice weekend.

If only we could get rid of lines and wrinkles in real life so easily :). I have found I look younger in Black and White, haha. I love the bits of Bokeh you've got going on in the DO. It really is a lovely photo. And you look beautiful.

I'm sure you didn't need alot of editing on this photo. I love you and your blog for who you are right now. :)

This is a great self-protrait. I tried to take my picture with the dog once. Haha. The dog looked better!

You're looking great. It's a lovely self-portrait. I, too, hate photos of myself but I think that's a common feeling. I think I'd be doing quite a lot of editing!

Very nice selfie. I love that you can see bokeh of yourself in the mirror.
Your blog banner is adorable.

Lovely photo!

Your photo looks lovely. It would be nice to erase bumps and wrinkles in life, too. I like the reflecting between the mirrors.

Great job! I love your composition.

Be proud of your wrinkles! There aren't that many of us with wrinkles in this group. It shows our wisdom :)

What a great photo! I actually wish I had taken more pictures when I was younger, they are amazing to look back on in a few years. You're looking wonderful!

Val, wrinkles show maturity and wisdom - we should flaunt them for the youngsters. :-)
Nice self photo.
