What was your experience like with TBW?

I must say when Katelan first asked me to do the project I was a little scared. I’m so used to the one behind the camera that I wasn’t sure how I was going to do this assignment.  I waited a long time before I even started the project….almost down to the last week we were supposed to submit the work. But in the end I am so glad I did it. Once I got my idea in my head and did not think about it I actually had a lot of fun with this project. And I would do it again in a heartbeat. J

What was the inspiration for your images?

Pressure was part of my decision. With only one week left to gather my images, I tried a variety of shots within my apartment but nothing was coming out how I wanted it. So I decided not to use a camera but instead use a scanner. I had an idea that was floating around in my mind and I was never really sure how to translate it to an image. I found that the scanner did just that.  Using the scanner I was able to get that specific emotion that I had crammed up in my mind.

What did you learn about yourself from the experience?

I learned that exposing my self to the rest of the world is not so hard.  It was nerve racking and uncomfortable for me to do this. I’ve taken several self-portraits in my lifetime but I’ve never showed them to anyone.  I never wanted anyone to see me in that light. I also felt more comfortable photographing some else. Never myself. But after doing this project I feel more at ease and will most likely do it again.

Do you feel you are in the same state of mind as when you started?

Although I still am apprehensive about doing a self portrait… I feel like its not so bad and that I will do it again.  I’m more comfortable with who I am, where I feel that in any light, good or bad sometimes its ok to expose that to others.  I’m a little more relaxed and confident.

What advice would you give to those wanting to take their own portraits?

Have fun! Don’t think about it…too much.  Don’t doubt yourself…. try it out first before you make a judgment because you might be surprised with what you find.  And eat a cookie while you work and listen to some good music. J
