Possibly my fave of the series to date. That's a really high jump! The dog helps put scale and perspective.

Try one in portrait mode, as this will allow you to put more space in the top of the frame without losing space at the bottom.

Challenge then is to make sure that you jump within the smaller vertical space and not be captured out of frame.

Great way to exercise Smile

Can see a mini trampoline being put down on the presents list Smile

This made me smile. Hadn't seen the previous ones in the series but they're all great fun. Particularly like the way your right leg follows exactly the line of the staircase. Now that's what I call composition! James.

Not sure how you jump so high but this is probably my favourite, the capture is almost perfect. Well Done.

I just love the way your dog just lies there and takes absolutely no notice!! Geoff
many thanks!! I took this one this morning and feel like it might be one of the best ones so far, I am playing around with various settings, angles, flash, etc. I haven't liked any with flash yet - just can't seem to find the right settings...and I have given it a shot as a verticle - but keep cutting my feet off! haha!
This series has been so great for me! I am just beginning to delve into the world of photography and taking these of myself has made me feel more connected to it as an artform.
Thanks for sharing in my great moment of personal growth Smile

You look like you have just popped into existence from nothing....POW! There you are! Love it. When you say you haven't liked any with the flash yet, have you got the flash off the camera or you using the camera's own flash? If it is, will never, ever give a flattering or decent light. You will need a separate flash gun, a trigger for it somehow, something to mount or stand it on and then just play around.....but get that flash off the camera! Wink I reckon these dont really need it though....the white balance is a little off due to the light source in the room, but thats fixable if you are shooting in RAW. But there is so much more fun to be had with shots like this.......have a look around on the web....there are loads of off camera flash resources to read up on. Good start is

Looking forward to seeing more..... Smile

Great series of self portraits!

Are you going to post the one you use for your portfolio photograph? It looks as though it deserves a larger view.

this is my fav of the series.lesley
Yep - camera's own flash! Thanks for the website info - I will have to check that out Smile Also - I am able to adjust the lighting in the room since it's on a dimmer so I will play around with that....
Thanks so much for wanting to view the other photo - I shall post it soon.
So so happy you are enjoying these! I can't wait to see where this project takes me. It's sure a fun ride right now - little sore though - HA!

There's a wonderful grace and silliness about this shot, which is a very appealing combination. Again, the impassive dog is a wonderful addition.
