Early on, I started talking back & forth with a few of the other participants, leaving comments on each others' selfies, then more comments on other shots we were posting to Instagram. I guess I'd say I made a few new 'friends', in the odd way that you can be friends on social media without ever having met in person.
So, what did I learn over this year of daily photos of myself? I'm not sure. I think I am more likely to get myself in the shot now, rather than exclusively posting cute pictures of my kids. It made me think about photography a little more--just in basic sense--trying to frame shots better, move around for the best light or angle. I thought more about how to tell a story with my pictures.
Will I keep selfie-ing? Probably, but not every single day. It'll be a relief in a way to take a break from them. I may do another photo challenge of some sort though. I actually liked the rigour of having to take a specific type of picture daily.
Here are a few of my favourite shots from my #365FeministSelfie project:
