It's that quite time again. Maybe you can use it to reflect a little on yourself and create an entry for the self portrait community's 'reflection' challenge.
See Lotus's post for details.
Self Portrait Challenge: Reflections
expand post for details

For this challenge, we'd like for you to craft a creative self portrait that incorporates reflections, but which does not include a visible capturing device in the image.

The Chrysta Rae scavenger hunt is on again. By now it's being run fabulously by the awesome +Lauri Novak​ who's amazing energy and motivation resonates throughout the community.

Even though my life underwent some profound changes last year and doesn't leave me a lot of time to actively participate in the community, I'm glad to be a part of it again.

So here is my entry for the word window light.

Enjoy and follow the link to the album to see many other creative interpretations!

Here is a cool new challenge from the self portrait community...
Self Portrait Challenge: Film Noir
Submissions accepted from September 1 - October 31, 2017.
expand post for details

For this challenge, we'd like you to create a "film noir self portrait." What does that mean? Merriam Webster defines film noir as "a type of crime film featuring cynical malevolent characters in a sleazy setting and an ominous atmosphere that is conveyed by shadowy photography and foreboding background music." Your challenge is to mimic this film genre with a self portrait. (Links below* may help you get ideas and understand the theme better, please check them out as you start brainstorming.)

Submit your entry via
Google+: Post to the “Challenge Submissions” Category http://goo.gl/VbVTm4
Facebook: Post to the Challenge Event: https://goo.gl/aGRLjs

Questions? Feel free to ask in comments, make a post in the discussion section of our G+ Community, or send a message to us at our Facebook page.
