MMM12 day 1

I’m late to the Me Made May party, but I’m in.  I hate my self timer, and I think that this is a good challenge for me to get comfortable using it.  The reality is that I don’t always have my husband handy to take pictures of me.  While I probably need to invest in a proper tripod (a camera that I didn’t have to reset after every self-timer shot would be nice too, but we all can dream right?), just getting used to taking pictures of myself is not a bad exercise.  Shoot, and I’m vaguely curious how it is that I wear my clothes on a monthly basis.  I have enough handmade garments that I rarely wear RTW anything except for underthings, camis, and workout gear.  So here we go:

I, Elizabeth of emadethis.wordpress.com  sign up as a participant of Me-Made-May ’12. I endeavour to wear one handmade garment each day for the duration of May 2012.  I want to document this daily if for no other reason than to make peace with my self-timer who has been a long enemy.

With that in mind, here’s day 1.  Yes, a tripod is probably better than haphazardly propping up the camera on a table, hoping for the best…but hey, there’s room for improvement right?  Does anyone with a Kodak Easy Share DX7590 know if there’s a way to keep the self timer on instead of having to turn it on for every. single. shot?

  1. Love the colour combination for MMM Day 1.

    Even though DH is around for taking photos, he is hopeless. so I purchased a tripod and a wireless digital remote, which connects to my camera and then I have a small button in my hand and just press it, the camera takes the photos and you don’t have to keep running back and forth. I’m pretty sure I got mine from e-bay.

  2. I agree. These are your colours. I also love your necklace.
