Self Portrait (for Dummies)

Last night was the monthly Honors Night at Bay Area Photo Club in Webster, Texas where I have been a member for several years. On Honors Night club members submit photos for presentation to the general membership and for critique by a panel of three judges. Awards are given and photographers advance to higher levels upon meeting certain cumulative awards requirements. Today's photo is one I submitted for the Assignment category. The assignment was Self Portraits. I received a Gold Award for the photo. I also submitted yesterday's post ("Coming Storm") in the Open Category and received a Bronze Award for it.

I hope you enjoy today's post and thanks for visiting my blog!

Title: "Self Portrait for Dummies"

Camera / Lens: Canon 40D / Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 zoom

I like it. Outstanding sence of humor, which is wha this photo is all about. I went to Barnes and Nobles but could not find the book. Any change I can borrow your copy?

Thanks Patrick!

I can lend you the book but you may find the inside pages to look conspicuously like the inside pages of "Pressure Cookers for Dummies"! LOL
