i'm with...

so a few years ago, summer CHA 07 in chicago, i finally met in real life my friend paula. we'd "met" through 2Peas, she was the pub ad challenge hostess and i was a pub ad challengee. apparently my self portraiture skills impressed her because she asked for tips on the art of capturing the perfect self portrait. i taught her all i know and happened to get this photo of her practicing. notice her correct form, the 45 degree angle? it is a flattering angle.


throughout that next year, i saw her grow as a self portrait artist, she started showing up on more and more of her own layouts. i was proud.

then this past summer, CHA 08, she went a step further and made me even prouder. she took the whole self portrait concept and added a friend. out of that venture, she came up with this really fun mini book, which she graciously allowed me to share. now paula will never need to stop someone and ask them to take a photo for her, she can do it herself. see the benefits?
