Show Me...YOU!

Welcome to Day 7 - Show me...YOU!

As previously stated this would entail "a self portrait; your hands; your feet (I know some of you will be all over this one!); a shielded view of you; any way you want to portray yourself will work here."

Once again I had no idea what I'd do for this one. As a photographer, I am so much more comfortable behind the camera rather than in front. So this is one of the last things I thought I'd shoot and post. But I'm doing it for a reason. Not vanity, that's for sure. As I'm getting closer and closer to being ready to get my photography business off the ground I recently invested in studio lighting equipment. That along with the idea for this post gave me an opportunity to take these pictures. I'm including a wide view so you can see the lights and how I set them up. Take note of the bath towel hanging on the entertainment center! I still have to order my backdrop and support. Then I'll be ready for clients and income.




I can't believe this is the last day of this project. I want to thank each and every participant. I also thank all the visitors to my site and to the sites of those who participated. It's been great fun. I hope you all enjoyed it and felt at least a little bit challenged.

Impressive self portraits. I like the black and white best. I've enjoyed your Show Me meme. Thanks for hosting it.

Ooooh great pictures Robert! I especially enjoy the b&w one... deep in though. What IS he thinking about.... probably how he should come over to the dark side and cheer on dem Padres!

I like your thinking pose! and black and white gives it a different element. Thank you Robert for this weeks challenge, it has been one!

Anndi said...

Thank you for the past week. You've been an inspiration. I'm sending you good thoughts (these are thoughts of a friend) for your latest endeavour...

*hugs*

Robert -- I like the second shot of you best. I am partial to b&w photographs for some reason, but it isn't just that, in this instance the b&w has a more personal aura about it.

Anna said...

OK, so I love this one! I love he black and white the best...SO PENSIVE...what could you be thinking?

I have been horrendously busy and able to spend very little time on the net, even so, I enjoyed this Photo Challenge and managed to post every day but one. I only see my house for about 7 hours a day, 3 days per week. This was probably my last project for awhile. Thanks for hosting Robert -- and don't forget to come by (unless your first week at school has wiped you out), you've missed my last three SHOW ME posts.

Thanks for hosting this photo project! It's been fun!!

Those are wonderful shots, Robert. Both pictures of you turned out very nice. Your shirt was the perfect complement to your eyes. The B&W is quite classic. It's also fun to see the entire set-up.

I'm sure you going to do wonderful in your photographic endeavors. You're a gifted photographer.

My final (and late) entry is here. Thanks for hosting this. It's been loads of fun! :D

Dillo said...

Nicely done. I, too, like the b/w.
Brave of you to put yourself out there like that!

I'll look forward to seeing what God does in your life as you pursue that,"....which truly makes you come alive."

I posted my "Self portrait" a couple of days before this Show Me, but I think the link is worthy.

Askew To You said...

Hi. I found you through another meme project, a link on someone's Ruby Tuesday post.

I'm also working toward opening a photography business. So much to learn. I wish you great success with yours!!

And your selfs are great, especially the black and white.

lynn said...

I'm just like you, I feel much more comfortable behind the camera! Good luck with your business. Life kinda got in the way and I wasn't able to participate the entire week, but I did have fun the days I was able to. Thanks for hosting it!

Kay said...

Robert... I finally got this up :P

Thanks for the whole project, I had a great time!

jennifer said...

Oh I HATE that I missed your challenge week. But since this is the first time that I have ever been to your blog....

Next time maybe? Looks like it was very popular!

Congrats on a successful week of memes.

Whoa Robert you are setting up a studio! And I think you have done some very good shots there. All the best wishes to your dream of turning PRO!
