If you are:
This class is really for you.
My class on self-portraiture is an hour and a half long. I can't teach you to love your nose or your butt. What I can do is give you the mojo to start taking photos of yourself that, over time, will help you develop confidence in front of your own camera, explore aspects of yourself as a photographer you may not have known you wanted to explore, and maybe even use yourself as a model in crazy and unexpected ways for long term projects. You! A model! I know, right?
This class will be a mix of discussion and hands-on photography. I'll talk to you a little about how I started doing self-portraiture and what it means to me. We'll talk a little about why you don't like photos of yourselves, or why you think self-portraiture is a terrible idea. And then we'll spend a little time setting our self-timers and seeing what sorts of shots we get. Yep, in front of each other.
