In a word Yes. :D for me at least, there were of course bobbles, but in general, very good. Three full photoshoots, lots of shooting around the con, some great connections, and many opportunities to hobnob in general.

I have had some pretty elaborate ideas surface for this... unfortunately I most likely won't be able to pull any of these ideas off. But that doesn't mean I won't try and come up with something. Hopefully I'll make the deadline!!

I'm very much looking forward to seeing the entries for this! I won't be entering this myself as self-portraits are something I'm very much not inclined to do, but will definitely be following along with a keen interest.

I stopped doing self-portraits long time ago, I only did them to experiment with different ideas and compositions. But this seems like a challenge for me, to see if I'm rusty or not in doing selfs :dummy:
