Elucidation by DianaGrigore Elucidation by DianaGrigore
A delicate wind graces my hair -
A shiver from the silent fear
One last breath for bravery...
Crystals of salt and sand inhaled as I embark on this journey.  Pellek - 'Elucidation'

I think I haven't done a self-portrait in years because I am afraid of being photographed. I just feel safer behind the camera and I hate being in front of it. These words must sound a bit odd from a person who photographs a lot of portraits, but I tried to step out of my comfort zone and experiment a bit.
Taking self-portraits lets us develop our sense of angles, know which type of lens to use in certain situations, experiment with different facial expressions. All of these and many more can give us a better idea on how to approach the future and discover new ideas.

Let's meet on FACEBOOK! :dance:

p.s.: tried my best with the makeup. Don't judge Nuu

nicely done, especially the make up with that hint of something like Phantom of the Opera meets geisha...

Oh lovely self portrait, I thought it was a model :D Makeup looks great dont worry about that, reminds me of Padme from star wars :)
Im afraid of being photographed too :XD: my camera doesnt like me at all, my old one was ok but my latest one has too much tech in it and fisheye lenses too much at arms length. Probably why i havent had a new id for over a year :rofl:
