I was very self-conscious about the first few self-portraits I took. It seemed vain. And I noticed every little blemish.
After doing a few, I don't feel as bad about taking them or posting them. I am my most-compliant subject, so I should take as much advantage of that as I can. However, I don't publish any pictures of my prominent jowls, and I convert pictures to black-and-white if that is more flattering. This is my blog, and that is my prerogative.
All of my self-portraits can be found here: photos tagged with "selfportrait".
Flickr has a lot of young female photographers who take nude pictures of themselves. I am glad that they do what they do, but don't worry, all pictures of me will be clothed.
