Day 41. It feels like it’s always raining on me.

Day 41. It feels like it’s always raining on me.

I’m extremely late on this one. I started the making of this picture yesterday but got short of time and craft supplies and I wasn’t in the mood of posting just a snap shot. I preferred to wait and finish this and try to do two pictures today (which I’m still planning to do). If…

Day 40. Red Tulips

Day 40. Red Tulips

Today it’s been hard. I’ve been in a war against myself all day, questioning my thoughts, my feelings, my decisions, this place and everything I do. I was drained at the time I started to setting lights to take the picture. Sometimes emotions and thoughts get the best of us and as much as I…

Day 39. My lil boy as my Creative Director.

Today I did something completely different than what I do every day. I gave up control of the whole creative process that goes into my daily picture to my 8 year old son Enzo. He has been asking me for a GoPro for a while now and as much as I would love to get…

Day 38. I took the day off!

Day 38. I took the day off!

So today I was feeling like doing nothing and that’s exactly what I did! I spent the whole day wearing a robe, dragging my feet. I wasn’t in the mood to put any makeup on, or do my hair or spend a long time on my computer playing in photoshop. Instead I spoiled myself a…

Day 37. The Pink Clown.

Day 37. The Pink Clown.

I set a new record today. I did my makeup, picked my props, set the lights, took the shoot and processed the picture in record time! And I have all Friday evening to do whatever I want. Well, that is after cooking dinner, taking care of the kids, put them to sleep… never mind, not…

Day 35. Guess what day it is…

Day 35. Guess what day it is…

I heard it’s wednesday but I honestly I feel like this week has been full of Mondays. Thankfully Friday is getting a lot closer… not that it makes a huge different for me. The work I do doesn’t have days off, sick days, weekends or holidays! Enjoy your evening.

Day 34. Dancing with light.

Day 34. Dancing with light.

Today I danced with light. I spent most of the morning sticking little crystals on my face with the intention of doing a regular portrait but as soon as I walked in my home studio I thought it would be cool to have little light trails made by the reflection of light on the crystals…

Day 32. The Flower Afro.

Day 32. The Flower Afro.

Well, hello there February! Today I just grabbed my big box of flowers I got for shoots and put them all on my head to make an afro! Then I asked my baby daddy to help me focusing the lensbaby lens to add a dreamy effect to the picture. Added a few textures and played with curves…

Day 31. Underwater.

Day 31. Underwater.

Well, I officially made it one month on this 365 Self Portrait Project. I cannot not believe I put it up. I think photography is one of the few things I have stick with in my life. This whole month has been fabulous. I didn’t think I was gonna feel so much joy doing this….

Day 30. Am I getting old?

Day 30. Am I getting old?

This has to be the most fun I’ve ever had retouching a picture. I spent the whole day laughing as I was drawing wrinkles on my face. I may even say it’s one of the images I’ve learned the most. I watched a bunch of tutorials on youtube and then went ahead and tried what…

Day 29. Snow Disaster.

Day 29. Snow Disaster.

I absolutely hate how this picture came out and I know you may be asking yourself “why the heck am I posting it then?”.  The answer is simple, I can’t win them all. I signed up in this challenge and I have to take and post one picture at day. I probably didn’t do my…

Day 27. Through glass

Day 27. Through glass

After a day of completely slacking and getting distracted with Oh! so many things, I finally shot and processed my picture in record time. I had so many ideas today but for the first time since I started the project I wasn’t feeling any.  So I went on the easy side and decided to make…

Day 26. Faceless

Day 26. Faceless

Everybody shows their worst selves on Monday…I’m showing you a little bit of my dark side today … I used the Frequency Separation technique to remove my eyes nose and lips, then I used a brush to even the tones, a little bit of dodge and burn and added skin texture back to where I…

Day 25. Fruit Loops

Day 25. Fruit Loops

I honestly don’t know why I love to glue things on my face. If you have been following me for a while you may know this is not the first time I do this. This time I went a little bit further, since the fruit loops didn’t seem to cooperate staying on my hair I…

Day 24. Watercolor.

Day 24. Watercolor.

I’m still recovering from the picture yesterday so I decided to take it easy today and do something fats and simple. For today’s picture I used a watercolor action I got online and played with textures for a little bit. I would have loved to do something like this with actual makeup but today was…

Day 23. Enchanted Forest

Day 23. Enchanted Forest

I’m officially very late for my picture, it’s past midnight and I just finished it. Well, I wasn’t feeling the theme I had picked for today’s picture and had the greatest idea to challenge myself to do something more complicated. It sounded fantastic at the time. But it really wasn’t the best day for me…

Day 22. Yellow.

Day 22. Yellow.

Today I had to choose my battles. My theme was “pick a color” and some how I wanted to do something with yellow. I was sure I had a set of two yellow gels for my strobes but sadly I had just one, which really messed up with the concept I had in mind. I…

Day 21. I’m a model, you know what I mean.

Laugh really is the best medicine. I have a little cold that wants to take me down and I haven’t been feeling so good but I went to take my picture anyways. As soon as I put that panty hose on my head I couldn’t stop laughing! It was extremely hard to pick just one…

Day 20. Where dreams come true.

Day 20. Where dreams come true.

The theme on my calendar for today’s picture as you can  see was double exposure. This is my first attempt with this technique. I went ahead a read a couple of tutorials on how create a double exposure in photoshop and after having a few ideas I went back to this picture I took 2…

Day 19. Color Gels.

Day 19. Color Gels.

Well, so far this is the latest I have posted a picture. It was a little struggle today, I was about to punch my computer, but I made it. For this picture once again I used my three strobes. This time I put a gel in every one of them. Right on front of me…

Day 18. Honey, I ate the kids!

Day 18. Honey, I ate the kids!

While having coffee this morning I told my baby daddy all about the concept of this picture. I’ve been planning this shot for a while but my biggest concern was getting my angles right for the composite. Well, that’s like a party invitation for a meticulous engineer. I wasn’t finished talking when he took a…

Day 17. Straight Out Of Camera.

Day 17. Straight Out Of Camera.

After slacking all day, taking naps with the kiddos, fixing issues in my website I went ahead and finally took today’s picture. I wanted to rely strictly on my lights. All of the images I’ve posted before are massively photoshopped. I LOVE playing in photoshop and learning new tricks but I love what light can…

Day 16. Bubbles.

Day 16. Bubbles.

Oh how fitting is this picture for today. I have a cold or the flu…don’t know yet! But I have an annoying runny nose perfect for snot bubbles, I know, gross! (the bubbles in the picture are NOT snot bubbles though). I have been dragging my feet to do everything today and I have tried…

Day 15. A Colorful Mess.

Day 15. A Colorful Mess.

I’m usually very structured when I prepare my shoots and do my makeup but today I was feeling like “let’s grab that brush and see what happens”, and of course, a mess happened, in my face, in the bathroom and oh my poor make up brushes! I kinda dig how everything turned out though. So…

Day 14. Fire Mohawk.

Day 14. Fire Mohawk.

To explain how this shot came together I have to go back a couple of weeks when I was planning to start this 365 project. I knew from the very beginning I couldn’t rely on inspiration. It’s silly to think that every morning a pink unicorn would slide down a rainbow straight to my bedroom…

Day 13. Flower girls

Day 13. Flower girls

I challenged my inner Martha Stewart today and I made flower crowns for my little baby and I. I don’t know if I’m more amazed about my crafty skills or the way I managed to spread a flower mess all over the house. Well, something else to clean, I’ll add it to the procrastinating list….

Day 12. Monday’s Blur

This picture pretty much reflects how I feel on Mondays. I takes a few cups of coffee to get rid of the blur and get back on schedule. For this picture I used the same set up I used yesterday, just one strobe with a beauty dish but this time I just used the modeling…
