Joined a group on Flickr called 52 Weeks of BAM to help me get more comfortable & confident taking my own picture. Their motto: A self portrait, taken every week...of you-for you-and by you!
It may be uncomfortable, it may be weird, it may make you cry, but step out from behind the camera and start snapping yourself! Own it! Love it! Embrace it! Let your bamtastic self shine :)
Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy. ~Norman Vincent Peale
