Black and White

I have been seriously slacking on my self portrait project this month. Like I said in earlier posts it's just been a really crazy and intense few months. This month's theme for {in the picture} was "black and white." I really love b/w photos so I am kind of bummed at myself that I didn't spend more time working on the assignment this month. Oh well, not going to beat myself up about it.

I did manage to take a moment today and take a few selfie shots with this theme in mind. When a photo has a lot of light contrast or if the whites of the eyes stand out it says "convert me to b/w!" At least that's what I hear. So I propped myself up where the blinds created some lines and made sure my eyes were either looking to the side or up to get a lot of white...and yes, I admit it, I'm showing off my engagement ring. (Hee hee hee.)

Have a wonderful weekend!
