Many of us have taken our own photo with our cameras or cellphones and there have been a few that have made it a point to take a photo a day to post on Flickr or similar sites.
Photographer Anna Gay took a step up to photograph herself every day for a year with amazing results.These aren't the staid photos that are the predictable output we've grown accustomed to that we quickly flip thru and forget about.
Anna Gay transforms herself on a daily basis and has really thought this out before pressing the shutter.
The result is her ebook,"The Art of Self-Portraiture Anna Gay's 365 Days."
Anna stated on the Digital Photography School site that this ebook project helped her in numerous ways.
"The Secret to My Photography’s Improvement?"
- Self-Portraiture gave me the avenue to practice my portrait photography without having to convince a friend or family member to pose for me.
- Self-Portraiture enabled me to experiment with techniques, posing and composition
- Self-Portraiture helped me to grow in my confidence as a photographer
- Self-Portraiture was also a lot of fun and helped me to find new ways to express myself to family and friends.
365 days is much more than interesting photos of the photographer who just happens to be very photogenic and a person with a sense of humor that you'd want to be one your top 10 friend list. This is a beautifully designed book filled with the 'Why' and 'How' to get the best results for this type of project. It's not as easy as you might think if you want something interesting as your final result. In addition,her post processing fits the tone perfectly for each image that is shown. Anna also creates Lightroom and Photoshop presets,textures and actions. She sells them thru her website at: http://annagay.com/
I found this book to be very inspiring and if you are in a creative slump or at a loss of having good subject manner like Anna Gay was before she started her creative adventure,this could be the catalyst to get you off the couch and create!
