Whistler Self-Portrait Goodness

more selfie fun in the woods!

Still more to share about Whistler (can you tell I loved this workshop)!

We spent much of the weekend with our cameras playfully turned on ourselves, be it our hands, our feet, our faces, our shadows or our whole selves.  I adored how the participants just went for it.  Because we were a small group, I had lots of opportunity to chat with each person and answer any questions that arose, which really was so lovely.

I especially loved our forest classroom, which provided some much needed shade in the hot hot heat, and was right off of a big park.  It was full of fallen logs (likely that the mountain bikers rode and jumped off of) but on this day the forest was just ours.  These fallen logs made for great spots to perch our cameras and try a whole bunch of different styles of shooting (eye level, from the ground, or even hanging our camera from a tree).

So I thought I’d share some of my favourite shots I ended up taking.  It was fun looking at the images as a whole as so many of them were of me demoing and talking as I’d take a selfie.  I also definitely took some moments to take self-portaits that really felt like they were capturing the weekend for me.

Here are a few of the self-portraits that came out of this adventure.  I love the way when we take self-portraits of a trip they can transport us right back there and these definitely will do just that for me.
