The Brenda Photo Challenge ---- Black and White Self Portrait.



This is my very first black and white photo challenge as well as my very first black and white self portrait.
I admitt I hate having my picture taken so I was reluctant to join in this challenge at first but after some thinking I came up with two ideas that  you can see here.
Please remember to hop over to see the other entries at the Brenda Photo Challenge Blog. Thank you!









In this first picture I used my photo editing program. 
I first took a picture of my eye using the self timer and later took another one of my profile which I pasted on the iris of my eye photograph. 









 I tried several times to take this picture and after many attempts I chose the one that turned out best, I kept cleaning the mirror's surface... it's unbelievable how the tiny specks of dust show up in black and white.
Brenda, thanks for another great challenge!

  6. Love these creative shots! It's crazy how just the littlest bit of dust can show up in a picture, isn't it?

  7. Yes, Jeanette, a tiny bit of dust can ruin a picture sometimes but we can always find a remedy thanks to photo editing programs.
