I was assigned to the 2nd challenge at CKC this month, and it's all about Selfies. Before I get to my challenge layout, here's an extra that I couldn't resist scrapping, and yes she really did take that one upside down. I wonder if she was actually bent over, peering at the camera, rather than pointing it towards herself in that one.
Back to the challenge. The challenge is to take a selfie and scrapbook it. Now, we have absolutely thousands, and thousands, of unscrapped photos, and I have a little rule, not to take photos just to scrap them for a challenge, unless they tell a story I wanted to scrap anyway. With 4 photographers in the house, I don't need to take any of myself, they take plenty of me already. There is, however, a type of photo we are short on in our collection, and we try to get several a year whenever we manage it. Family photos are the ones I'm talking about, and so we come to the Group Selfie.
My camera has a timer that takes multiple shots, and Dainel's attaches to a little thing called a gorillapod. It's rather a useful little gadget, a bit like a tripod, except the legs are bendable and can be made to grip on tree branches, pushchair handles, and fences etc.
