For the last week of the 2018 Dogwood Photography Challenge, I was to capture a creative self portrait of me. So on the Friday before New Years Day, I thought about what I could do and mentally noted some ideas.
The next day, I had my plan of attack. I gathered some of my favourite plants, including my Alocasia Frydek (Green Velvet Plant), which I sat in my bookshelf with it’s longs stalks and leaves facing the camera. I then took multiple shots of the other different plants I had planed out earlier, transfered the shots to my computer and got to work on creating my final piece.
This project took me a day, with a three hour work shift in between, with me putting the finishing touches in at 9 o’clock at night. It’s just one of many side projects I am proud of.
