Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #1: Lets Say Hello



"A fine artist is one who makes familiar things new, and new things familiar."

-Louis Nizer

Welcome to the very first week of the Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot, or (EMPS) for short! :) Let's just jump in, shall we?

THIS CHALLENGE IS NOW CLOSED! THANK YOU FOR PLAYING!

Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot#1: Let's Say Hello!
Although we have known each other for quite some time now, I thought it would good to get things off to a friendly start, by asking you to take a self-portrait of you and your camera! If you want to add a frame and/or a little "hello" as a caption, well, that would be even better!

**You have until next Sunday at 9:00 p.m. (PDT) to do the assignment, and submit your entry. It doesn't have to be submitted on Monday! Please double check your link before you leave it, it is your responsibility to submit it correctly. The link you leave me, is the one I will use to link back to you!

Now go be photographers, and I will see you in one week!

Photo Tip #1: Follow The Rule Of Thirds.
Imagine your photo divided into three horizontal and vertical sections. Place your subject near the intersections of the imaginary lines.

Hooray! I get to be first! I'm positively giddy over here about the new Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot! What else would explain what I almost posted for you? But come see what survived the self-censorship...

I have been contemplating doing a self portrait for some time, so if I can get a decent one (which means one where I don't think I look horrible) I will come back and sign up. :)

I'm afraid a self portrait would break the camera, but I'll think of something. To quote your governor, I'll be back.

I don't have many good self potrait right now, I'll try and take one soon and post. BRB.

OK, I will work on me, hairdresser, beauty salon, new make up, tinted eyelashes, powder, eyeshadows, no lipstick that would be hidden by the camera ! I come back when it's ready !

Hey beautiful!
I'm so excited that you'll be doing this Mon. shoot from now on. I will always, always try to do it! But geez Carly...a pic of ourselves for the first one? That's a gutsy, though great idea!
I'll see what I can do.

Love,
Nancy

A Mr. Linky or Blogroll of the participants would be more easy than the comment pop up !

Alright, I know I said that I wasn't going to be able to participate in this one, but I decided to bend your rules just a little bit and use a picture that wasn't taken by me. Hope that is OK.
