Self Portraits…


I was recently asked to participate in a short film, and took the opportunity to shoot some flicks for myself while on set. I liked how they came out so much that I posted some to Facebook, and the feedback has been amazing. I did my own eye makeup (shouts to TreZure and Anne for the the inspiration!), but I have to give it to Nike Alao for the final look! Hair by moi…rare time rocking the fro sans headscarf. I felt like a completely different person with the hair change and makeup and wanted to document the moment.

Dirty Souf Yankee brought up a good point, even though my homegirl NattyNight said I should get in front of the camera more: I’m actually a shy person, and it’s really difficult to open up to someone’s camera when you’re not comfortable with him/her. Sometimes the best photographer is yourself…and so these were shot in a hallway with no one around. Enjoy.
