AS a novice photographer, I wanted to challenge myself. Thus I began the 365 day challenge, where I need to take a photo or write something everyday.I chose with the very broad topic "The World Around Me" because my desire to become a capable photographer has it's roots in the desire to share the world how I see it. This is a journal to document my journey!

Day 32- Summer Lace
Doing these self portraits was a blast, other than the sweltering heat. I saw Tyra do a photo shoot on ANTM where she cast shadows over the models and I had always wanted to give it a shot. I used a piece of black lace and the sun as light. I really like how contradicting it is; a masculine shirt with a girly skirt, old fashioned lace with a hippy-chic kind of vibe, black and white. In the end, I think these pictures have a very Cuban feeling. Also, this is the first time I have photographed myself Au Natural. I am not wearing any make-up and my hair dried without me styling it or adding any products.
