MY CAMERA AND I: Weekend Photography Challenge

This weekend’s photography challenge is to take a picture of yourself and your camera.

We’ve all seen these kinds of self portraits – usually taken with the help of a mirror – yes they can be a little cliche but I thought they might also be fun. Firstly they’ll help us put faces to one another’s names but secondly they’ll give us a quick visual snapshot of the type of cameras our community is using.

So grab your camera, find a mirror, plan a shot that not only fulfils the theme of ‘my camera and I’ but also is a visually pleasing portrait – and take your shot.

PLEASE NOTE: We’re looking for ‘new‘ shots (or shots taken in the last few days) – this is a challenge rather than a look through your archives for a shot! This is about inspiring you to take more photos, not just showing off what you’ve already taken – we have a ‘share your shots‘ section in our forum for showing other shots you’ve taken so please do use that section for that purpose.

Once you’ve taken your photos – choose your best 1-2, upload them to your favourite photo sharing site either share a link to them even better – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSMYCAMERA to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Go to it: Take a picture of you taking a picture of yourself taking a picture…..

Here are a few to get you in the mood:
