This week's Project 52 theme is "Inspire". I wasn't really sure what to do for this week - partially cuz I'm feeling rather uninspired and also because my arthritis is flaring so badly that it's too painful to really delve into an involved photo assignment. So I kept it fairly simple and placed my camera on a tripod (since it's too heavy for me to hold at the moment) and decided to do a self-portrait. But of course, I can't do my hair or makeup as I my right hand is curled up as if I have palsy (I'm right-handed). In an effort not to totally scare you, I did crop the image tremendously and did some digital eye makeup with my Wacom tablet and pen using my left hand. After all of that, I think it may actually have been easier to do REAL makeup with my left hand. LOL
For those interested in settings, I used the Canon 135L lens at ISO 800, 1/40, F5.6, tripod, and natural light.
And now I'm off to take more ibuprofen with a Tylenol chaser. :) Oh and if you want to follow along, please post your own Project 52 link in the comments below.
