Don’t you hate being in front of the camera? I do. I hate it. That’s what this month’s assignment is: Self Portrait. Yay! Now before you decide you aren’t going to do this because you don’t like being in front of the camera you can shut your damn mouth right now. I stripped down to my underwear and got about as vulnerable as I can get in public. So guess what — you can do this too.
Shut. Your. Damn. Mouth.
The assignment is Self Portrait. Deal with it. Do it. Feel how uncomfortable it is in front of the camera. You need to know how that feels so you can be a better photographer when you are photographing someone who is uncomfortable in front of the camera.
This is for new work and new work only. Do not be an idiot and post old work into the pool. Do not post random ass street photos. It’s amazing how many people just pay no damn attention to the assignment. Pay attention. Stop being a moron. I’m going to continue being an asshole about this.
You can post to the Flickr pool here. Or you can tag your photos on 500px and IG with #DEDPXL09.
And here is the critique for DEDPXL08.
