Self Portrait

Self Portrait

As you probably know, this week the focus at Just Stay Curious is “Be Unique”. We’re embracing our quirks, flaws, and individuality. Today I have a little bonus challenge that will also allow you to get creative. I want you to take a self portrait. Yep. That’s right. I want you to take a photo of yourself.

Okay, okay, I’m trying to make “selfie” sound more classy- I’m calling it a self portrait. But really, it is way more than a selfie, take a photo of yourself that shows your essence. A photo that makes you super happy to look at. There’s only one rule: no bathroom shots! Get creative and use that self timer on your phone or camera!

Self Portrait Just Stay CuriousThis is my self portrait. Why? I think it represents many qualities of myself: I love being outside, I love flowers (they were cropped), and I NEED sunscreen or a hat or else I’ll burn. I also think that it’s a bit artistic and I like to think of myself as a creative person. It’s taken in the Spring time which is one of my favorite seasons and I’m wearing a dress and hat I love. In one photograph I was able to capture so much about myself, and since I staged the shot myself I captured it in a way no one else could.

If you hate selfies then just remind yourself it’s a self portrait ;) I can’t wait to see what you post!! Share your images on Instagram, or you can email them to me if you’d like me to share them for you (if you don’t want them shared, please mention that in the email). As always, use the hashtag #juststaycuriouschallenge, and write a caption that tells us why this self portrait captures your unique personality.
