I hope that this satisfies one and all that I am not scary 🙂 much…. I tried not to process this pic at all, but couldn’t resist lightening the eyes and a texture frame… see? in the immortal words of gwen stefani ‘I’m just a girl’ 🙂 and my husband does not ‘sleep all the time’.. he works 12 hours a day and then comes home and cooks and cleans, and when he lies down i grab my camera! and i am not ‘abusing’ my husband in any way by taking pics of him when he is sleeping, he ok’s every picture that goes into this blog and i always want him to know that it’s a great thing to support me in my photography, and the last picture was NOT A CROP lol

  1. Hey Elaine this is awesome photo of yourself. Very candid – and I know you dont abuse the husband as in abuse not there. I am glad he supports you thats the way it should be. I just had trouble resisting calling abuse because it was funny and I know if there was real abuse it would most likely show up in the images processing aside 😉 Great job with your site and your photos I am a fan 🙂

  2. Your hubby sounds like good people to me… and he deserves his rest. Great image of you, the eyes are magic! I like your processing!! It brings a lovely feel to your self portrait! No… not scary at all!

  3. No, you’re not scary. I knew from your About page you weren’t scary:-) John is the same way as your hubby. He works long hours 7 days a week and he’s fine until he sits down, but as soon as he sits down he falls asleep. Tough world we exist in. Hang tough girl:-) Hey! When the goin’ gets tough the tough go to the beach…lol

  4. just an amazing SP — so honest, so real!! you have given everything of yourself for this shot and it is truly worth 10 fold!!!! brilliant work here — 5 stars!! just top notch — bravo!!!

  5. Brave and honest to open up to the world, and what a self portrait. Neat processing as always.Yes, absolutely, kudos to you by the bucket load, power to you. Just don’t tell hubby about the G-string… OK … ha ha

  6. Takes a lot of guts to put a self-portrait out there on the internets. At least it does for me…not sure why. Maybe you’ve inspired me to cook one up next week but I can guarantee you it will be so messed up nobody could ever recognize me from it!I like yours. So many photographers shoot their own portraits with chiaroscuro lighting and just take it way too seriously. This is simply a nice, warm, intimate self portrait. And you should abuse your husband. Secretly we like it.

  7. That an awesome work. I just can’t take a self portrait – I’m not able to “approve” any of “my” photos… Great wore, I love it 🙂

  8. definitely not scary.. 🙂 anybody who’s seen your about page can attest to that.. that’s some awesome frames & borders your using.. 🙂

  9. your not scary in the least, a lovely candid self portrait, and your hubby sounds a great guy, sounds a bit like me actually except I take the photos in this house LOL

  10. See…not scary at all and I really like the focus on your eyes. Is it me or do you have a Rogue (X-Men) thing going on in this shot? Any super powers we need to know of?

So... What do ya think?
