Dolled up and Nowhere to go...

Puting on some make-up, even if it is just to do housework makes me feel good about myself... and also the look on James' face when he gets home from work is great too as i very rarely wear make-up. I had a go at some self portraits using my tripod and remote shutter release... it was quite tricky getting the focusing right in the mirror but i think i managed it.

I am really enjoying my camera again which is the main aim of me doing these images.

If you want to see the images before i put them in a montage i will post them below.

Re: Dolled up and Nowhere to go...

Great idea... if I was being critical i would suggest that the eye you are applying make up to is they eye of main interest, yet it is dark, and then the other eye which could be darker or blurred is more prominent. Great idea though, looks good, but just my thoughts.
