Self Portraiture

I once took a class called Autobiographical Photography. As part of our assignment, we had to take a self portrait every day. Here are of the few ones I took while in that class.

I think I'm going to take this challenge upon myself once more. Before, it was challenging, but fun to be creative and also motivating to go out and photograph more often. These days, I find myself photographing less and less. I'm learning proper motivation and opportunities is so necessary for photographers to improve.

Every day is new and different. In daily self-portraiture you are documenting current feelings, issues, and states of yourself. Complete, photos create a portrait of daily life and a hint of one's life beyond the few seconds documented each day, including the past and the future.

This is the photo I took yesterday of myself.


  1. Karisa, Totally love the new dew! You also have some great photography. I was checking it out on your facebook. You totally rock!

  3. Self portraiture is so interesting to me-I love seeing how your perception of yourself can change through your work.
