May Self-Portrait ~ Fear

Clickin Moms is challenging everyone to do 12 self-portraits in 2012, one for each month. I have not shot much this month, especially in comparison to the last couple of months… mostly due to never-ending illnesses with me and the kids. I think we’ve all had mono, ugh. Anyway, I’ve been feeling a lot of anxiety lately, so I thought I’d try to capture that in a self-portrait. I call this “Fear.”

It’s a little disconcerting seeing my eyes so close up but I do feel my fear here. I processed this bright, almost blowing my highlights on purpose, to add to a spookier atmosphere. This is an in-camera crop… I used my macro lens and held the camera at arm’s length with the focal point hitting my left eye.
