Self Portrait: Barbie

Thursday, November 13, 2014

If you follow me on instagram and tumblr, you'll have already seen these - but for the sake of properly archiving I wanted to post these here as well! I have been itching to do self portraits with my DSLR for months, and my grandfather giving me a camera remote finally enabled me to do that!

For my first test run, I wanted to do something pretty foolproof as far as makeup and styling goes, so I just did my trademark retro Barbie styling - but this time, added my rendition of 90s Barbie for something a bit different!

I hope you guys like them! I obviously have a lot more practice I need to do, but I'm pretty happy with how they turned out considering this was the first time I dipped my toe into self portraits with a camera remote <3
