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!
This 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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
