Self Portrait Project
April 2020, January 2021
In 2013, I got my first DSLR camera. Since then, I’ve been teaching myself photography, editing software, and growing my personal style.Taking self portraits allows me to express different sides of identity and explore new artistic styles.
After the COVID-19 pandemic hit, I felt a lost sense of self without the everyday structure of my normal life. I decided to document the different emotions and experiences I was feeling during this unknown time by taking a self portrait everyday for a month. Each day, I prioritized photographing different styles, emotions, and editing techniques. I completed two self portrait projects- the first during April 2020 and the second during January 2021.
