Taking My Picture

I have a new profile picture - I just took it today.
I thought I'd give a few hints on taking this particular type of photo.

1. Get hair colored and cut day of photo
2. Get home quickly before hair totally falls flat
3. Go into bathroom, forget to apply lipstick, but smile at self for 10 minutes, trying to get just the right "look"
4. Toss hair a bit, then straighten hair again because now it is all sticking up due to static electricity.
5. Find camera
6. Look in mirror and take picture
7. Realize that the flash was on and of course the mirror caught the flash
8. Look at picture on digital camera. Notice vanity needs cleaning.
9. Clean off bathroom counter and wash mirror.
10. Realize that maybe the mirror shot isn't the best.
11. Turn around and *Lightbulb Moment* use mirror to see the picture on the screen of the digital camera! Click
12. Click 25 times adjusting smile, neck, chin and shoulders.
13. Bathroom mirror trick was great - highly recommend that if you are taking your own picture.
14. Immediately load photos onto computer - delete photos from camera
15. Two photos were keepers - the rest pure comedy
16. Insert new photo on blog.
17. Blog about it :)

Have a Great Day!
