In the picture

I got some alone time to play with my new toy today.

I hinted via pinterest for this Ring Flash Adapter and got it for Christmas (thank you baby!) I'm sure I won't use it for many portrait sessions which is why I didn't want to get the more expensive Ring Flash, but I do like the softer light and the cool reflections in the eyes it creates.

It's a "just for fun" toy.

And I was having fun playing with it for sure.

Speaking of self portraits Christy of Urban Muser is putting together a community self portrait project called In The Picture. I have never been shy in front of the camera but I find it very difficult to "shoot blind" in a way (with out my eye in the viewfinder.) I want to take the time to come up with a concept, create it, and shoot it with out having to delete 100 shots before I click one that is acceptable. I am hopeful this project will help inspire and give me the much needed practice to reach this goal.

So... I'm excited. Something to look forward to in 2012.
