Final 3 Self Portraits for Project 1

February 03, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I have finally settled on the three Self Portraits that I will use for Project 1.  I have loaded them onto Instagram www.instagram.com/cheridesailly/  and shared them with my Facebook site Cheri Desailly .  I have also completed my word document to submit via Dropbox to the Photography and Social media Unit home.  A bit late due to some ill health and other distractions, but fortunately not penalised for this.  

Because of the sort of photography I do, I prefer to convey a somewhat casual, slightly familiar and relaxed feeling to my images, while endeavouring to produce a high quality of photograph.  I initially had selected six images and after the very good critiques I received and a little soul searching, the photographs below are the ones selected.

Outdoor SelfOutdoor Self Getting Ready

In the two images above I am wearing hats.  Because I am a skin cancer sufferer (my nose is mostly skin graft), I rarely walk outside the door without a hat. For the more rugged outdoor pursuits of my travel photography I wear the one on the left.  I happened to be doing a shoot for The handsome Horse and decided that location would work well for the outdoor self portrait.  I have many hats for different occasions, and the last thing I do before walking out the door is to look in the mirror and put on my hat. Hence the next image.
Musical InfluencesMusical Influences This final image is meant to show a blending of personal, creative and work life.  I love music from all eras.  The Cat Stevens album cover is straight out of my young adult life.  The Blended singer in the background is my son, Locky, who is a full time professional entertainer.  Gig photography is part of my repertoire and it is a lot of fun.  The mirror ball effect is a photo of Christmas lights taken in Singapore.  Other photos from Singapore can be seen on my website, www.cheridesailly.com

For the benefit of who ever will be marking my project 1 submission.  The preceding blog entries for this project start with Week 1 - Photography and Social Media
