My Defective Ear

A 366-day pursuit in personal portraiture, presented by nige.

The challenge: to photograph, and post to this moblog, a portrait shot of myself, every single day, over the next year. Apparently, it's much harder than it sounds...

Perhaps more challenging: that i don't enjoy seeing my phizog in a photo at the best of times, and knowing that i'm probably going to annoy the hell out of the moblog community in doing this. So, sincere apologies in advance for this undertaking, but i just can't help myself. I promise to try and be creative, so you won't have to look at my mug every day.

Anyone interested in joining me? I think i'm probably going to need the company...

beth says:

yes all these shots are quite inspiring. do you have a case for your camera?

nige says:

close goode. i set the timer and put it in a sugar jar, then took a dive in the bath.

no case b. i tell you what, since i've sold my camera, i'm doing all these with my cameraphone, and it's so challenging, but lots of fun. being restricted makes me want to push things a bit further.

beth says:

Ah I see. I was wondering why they were more noisy than usual! Yes I enjoy the challenge of the cam phone too.

Sold for a better one I guess?

nige says:

Ha! Well drowned, Nige. :)

nige says:

hell no to canon! i'll either get a D300 or a D3, but i need to take the D3 out for a proper spin first. i think it's likely to be overkill for what i need, but i'd like to try it anyway.

thanks caine :)

This series of shots are wrong in so many ways but they're truly marvelous at the same time!!!

come on steph, how can something so wrong be so right? explain!

Essitam says:

They're disturbing, suicide as a whole is but that doesn't stop them being aesthetically pleasing

nige says:

it's so funny, because when i'm setting these things up, everything i do is so far away from me actually committing such emo-offences. i kept getting water up my nose on this one, and it was such a pain to get it right. i've got pics of the set-ups actually. i should post them.
