You In Front Of The Camera | Beautiful Self Portraits From the CY365 CommunityPosted by Katrina Kennedy on Aug 1, 2014 in Blog, Photography, Self Portraits | 5 comments
“Selfies” may be trendy today, but getting in front of your camera in a thoughtful, artistic way is timeless. The duck face photos people make will be lost to phone upgrades and hard drive purges. You and those you love will treasure the photos of YOU, being you. The CY365 Community is filled with beautiful, thoughtful, funny, and fabulous self portraits. Let them inspire you as you step in front of your lens. Click each image to view it in the CY365 Gallery.
I love photos that include a part of you doing what you love. You don’t have to show your entire self or fill the frame with your face. The details of who you are, what you love, and how you live your life can shine in photos of just your hands.

Go For The Whimsical View
Your self portraits don’t need to be serious or stuffy. Put your personality into them with a bit of whimsy. Try fun angles or goofy poses. Show us who YOU are!

Try A Low Key Approach
With one light source you can create a gorgeous low key image. A lamp or off camera flash can be used to illuminate just a part of your gorgeous self. This is a forgiving approach for your first attempts at self portraiture.

Capture A Behind The Scenes View
Don’t be afraid to step back and grab a bigger picture. A beautiful environmental approach show the context of who you are and conveys a pleasant mood. I’d love to see this approach with a mom surrounded by the clutter of a living room after kids have destroyed it!
