BAM, The Next Five

I've been participating in the 52 weeks of BAM! group on flickr since January.  Basically it is an attempt to take 52 self-portraits before the end of the year.  I posted my first five BAM portraits back in February.  Here are the next five...

I still don't feel like I am really in my groove with this project.  I recently purchased a remote control and a tripod, so we'll see if that will help to push me to the next level.

The 2nd, 3rd and 5th photos were shot with my iPhone, so I am hooking up at Pasando again this week.

In the 4th photo, I am flying through the air (note: this took several attempts, with a security guard under the George Washington Bridge watching my every move).  I am linking up at Madeline Bea where the word this week is "fly"!!

I am also linking up at Communal Global.  It's a wonderful collaborative of photos from around the world.  They are trying to get 100 people to link up today, so if you have time, you should go check it out!

I think these are awesome - you should check out Selfie Saturday that I've been linking up with. She's got some great selfie tips.

I love the underwater shot. It's eerie yet beautiful at the same time.

I have had such a terrible time with the self portrait prompts at Picture Inspiration and Picture Spring...it is my least favortite thing to photo...but you make it look like fun! Great shots!

Tamar SB said...

These are awesome - what a cool challenge - I may have to try that on my own!

I like your different takes on self portraits and I like that there is still some mystery of what you really look like :)

Fun challenge. Love that second to last one in action.

I think the second (B/W) shot from the top is my favorite, but these are ALL wonderful. As always.

Joan said...

Nice!
Self-portraits would be a tough one for me. :)

Nancy said...

You are so silly! I just bought a remote, but still need the tripod. Any suggestions? Money is tight. :)

They are all great. The first one cracks me up - its like some Prada sunglasses ad or something. The underwater one is really cool and the last one with the golden frame is great. Well done on the selfies. They are kinda fun once you get into it :)

Anika said...

I love your self portraits and have been enjoying seeing them in the flickr stream. The texture on that second one is intriguing...is it a reflection??
Always love visiting your blog...glad to see you again for this weeks phonography!

The second one is awesome : ) You look like a super agent.

Alita said...

I really like your 4th shot.

I'm horrid with selfies. I'm just not that good with taking my own picture. (I took one on Sunday and I just looked pissed, lol.) You do a great job!

I love the jumping one!!! I just saw this article today about a 17 year old doing self portraits, these are AMAZING: http://www.mymodernmet.com/profiles/blogs/stunning-selfportraits-by-a

One of the best things about NYC is that every single moment is performance art. And nobody ever realizes it.

Love the GW Bridge picture.

These are great!!
Love each one.

Nice photos! I especially love the first two.
Keep up the good work!

Tracey said...

Oh I love your self-portraits ... I think it's a great project to be involved in. I'm always so self-conscious taking and sharing photos of myself.

ELK said...

this is a really fun series of YOU .. the security guard was probably smiling on the inside!!

Anna said...

Love the second and third selfies. Too fun!

sounds like fun to experiment with a remote and a tripote - have fun with it!
