Again, it has been a long time since I have done any posting. So, I will add some new images of recent self-portrait photographs. I have done a few new series exploring transformations. Not just with hair and makeup, but with how I show my emotions. It is amazing how much a small change in an emotion caught on film(well, digital disk these days) can effect the whole feeling of a photograph. This is so intriquing to me-yes, I should have thought of this a long time ago! I think more and more about this as I take these photographs and folks don't think any of them are self-portraits. I am more aware of how I perceive people and am perceived myself as I walk around every day too. More on that later! I am wishing you all a Wonderful New Year!
