want to try this for Feb?
 
This is the Event for our February Self Portrait Challenge: Interesting Angle / POV. What this means is that you should shoot your image with a visually interesting point-of-view or camera angle (look straight up, straight down, from an extreme angle, or unique vantage point).

A few possibly helpful links:
Camera Angles: http://goo.gl/tQcSD3

Here is where you enter your ONE "Interesting Angle / POV" Self Portrait. Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST February 29th, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. (The dates on the Event are truncated, but you can submit a photo anytime, all month long.) Please read all rules (scroll down). Not adhering to rules will get you disqualified.

Moderators of the Art of Self Portraiture Community are not eligible to win, but we will also be putting our photos into the Event in the hopes that you'll be inspired.

If you have questions or need help, please pop into the Community http://goo.gl/W69Ohj and ask away! We have a category for discussion and questions and are happy to help with anything.
