Photography Challenge: Day 22 and 23- Frame Within a Frame/Faceless Self Portrait

Considering I missed yesterday, I had to make up for it and do two today.

Every day I am discovering and trying new things with my camera since I’ve gotten it.  This camera can do so much and I become like a child every single time I figure it out. 

I’m part of a photography community called Shoot and Share.  I absolutely love it.  It is the one place where I feel as though I’ve learned so much.  Actually, I’ve probably learned more in the past few months than I have in the whole four years that I’ve seriously begun shooting.  The group is an amazing place where people can ask questions, share inspiration, and network. 

Long story short,  I noticed someone ask for suggestions regarding the Canon 6d.  Every time I see a post related to this camera, I have to follow it and either give my input of what I’ve thought about it thus far, as well as hear the input of the other photographers that own the camera.  Anyways, I saw someone mention that they were able to use their phone as a remote for the camera and I immediately Googled it and figured out how to do it.  

Turns out Canon developed an app that was compatible with the 6D and smartphone.  Straight from my phone I can change all the camera settings and focus.  It changed my life.  It was also just in time because I needed to take another self portrait.


Speaking of self portraits, I have to say there is nothing more awkward than knowing a picture is being taken of you when you can’t look at the camera.  I already dislike taking pictures of myself enough, but I do have to say that it was easier for me to take this picture with my phone as remote because I was able to see that I was properly framed. 

There really isn’t anything else that I could say about this portrait. I tried editing it to look a bit dramatic.  I do have to say that I may be getting the hang of it a little 😉
