Blowin’ in the wind…

April 9, 2011

The answer my friend is blowing in the wind…

No, this is not a hippie post.  But this week’s assignment over at Selfie Saturday was to let your hair do just that… blow in the wind.

Now, this girl has some big hair.  Curly hair.  Crazy hair.  And the idea of it looking even wilder wasn’t thrilling me alot, but I do LOVE the challenges that Elena gives us.  This is all about stretching ourselves, right?

Anyway, here are my “windblown” looks.  I was so happy because I HAVE A TRIPOD AND REMOTE!  No more tricky balancing on the ledges, chairs, tables, etc, etc. and running to get in front of the camera.  Although I still have a lot to learn with getting the focus exactly right, I feel like getting these images was so much easier.

The one thing I don’t like is that to get better lighting, I have to be somewhat facing the light.  But facing the light causes me to squint… so ???  I can only pray for overcasts days when it comes to photographing myself!

    Robin, these are beautiful! You’re not squinting too badly but because you are facing the light your eyes are really popping. Yay for the tripod and remote! Worth the purchase, right? GREAT selfies!

    Beautiful, Robin! Congrats on getting a tripod and remote! Oh, the fun to be had with those!
    I like all of these, but the third is my favorite!
    Remember, flat-haired women around the globe are enjoying your “big” hair right now. 😉

    The first one is really great! I wish the other side of your hair wasn’t cut off, but it still looks gorgeous! Great Job, Robin!
