    Oct27 @Mark, If one were to look at my Flickr setram and took note of all the photos of me, they’d think I have the biggest ego ever. But about 4 years ago I decided I needed to get over my shyness of the camera and so I started a little experiment where I took photos of myself in every angle/light/environment possible. They’re not always the most flattering of photos but that wasn’t the point. The point was, as you mentioned, to not hate being in front of a camera. I’m happy to say that my experiment worked. During the DC photoshoot a friend caught me in the taking a photo mode and I knew she was doing it. And I didn’t run away. That is progress!
