All about me

In order to keep my promise to take and post a self-portrait at least once a month, I had to act quickly yesterday.  Since Mr. Monkeygirl loves me and bought me some cool camera equipment for Christmas, I decided to put it to good use. I dug the tripod out from under the bed and located my remote trigger (one of the coolest presents ever!)  I found a spot with some decent natural light and started playing around with the camera.  It took a while to figure out the tricks of positioning the camera, how to get the remote to work, how to not look completely stupid in the photo, etc.

So here is an edited version of my results.  Mr. M also bought me the coolest editing software and I needed to learn how to use it before he clobbers me.  I'm starting to get the hang of it and thought this was kind of fun.  I promised a photo, no one said it had to be realistic!

Cool pic! You'll have to show me how all those goodies work sometime.

And good for you for following through. :-)
