So much has changed here in the studio.  Not only in workflow and equipment changes, but how I’ve learned to see myself and my work.

I have found self-portraiture as a way to learn self-love.  Not only has it helped me with my dysphoria, it’s allowed me to learn to see myself as a piece of art.  It’s helped me better comes to terms with the skin I’ve been given.

Along with the grander scheme of not feeling at home in my body, I’m no longer so embarrassed by my hands.  My hands are often a very bright red, presumably because of a thyroid issue and my very low blood pressure.  It’s been a pain to edit out or otherwise try to prevent, but I’ve learned to accept that that’s just how they are.

Instead of seeing an embarrassing bright red, I see it as a blush that fits well with my style of portraiture, especially in this photoset.

Self-portrature can help us to not only learn about who we are, but how we are all pieces of artwork.

Perfectly imperfect.

We need the contrast in our lives, the good and the bad, to really understand and appreciate life.

The beauty of life always shines in the dark.  So when we’re not enveloped in light, we can still find it glowing in the shadows.

How do you take care of yourself during a harder times of life?

We all have dark seasons, and we need to know what’s best for us to get through.

What’s your favorite kind of fashion?  Punk?  Pastel goth?  Pixie witch?

 

Styles cycle in and out of our lives, and get dressed up and dressed down as our tastes and needs change.

Sometimes we find ourselves going back to what we loved when we were younger, and then slingshot to what we’ll probably like when we’re 45.

What fashion are you currently into?
