Like many avid photographers, I've got thousands of photos on my hard drive, of which, I'm in maybe 5 or 10.
I just wasted 30 minutes trying to find a decent photo of myself to use for my Twitter badge. I quickly remembered that I generally hate photos of myself. It is very rare that I like any of them and that's why the photo in my blog profile has never really changed.
I did manage to find a couple passable ones. The first one I chose I happen to like quite a bit, but it looks far more serious and contemplative than I actually am. I would feel like I was pretending if I used that one. It was actually taken with my 50mm F1.8 lens at arm's length while I was looking out a nearby window.
I finally found one a little more in character for me. Of course it was taken when I'm at my absolute happiest - when I'm cuddling my daughter.
So until I go get the glamour shots done at the mall, that's the one I have to settle on for my Twitter badge. ;)
Of course the backup plan is to do some very very minor touchups to my blog profile photo using Inkscape... can you tell which one's the original?
