I'm posting this a day early because the story I'm telling is a true one: I'm 39 today!
I've never taken a birthday self-portrait before, so I figured I'd better begin before I have to start photoshopping all the wrinkles. Usually, storytelling shots don't involve a close up, but I like filling the frame with a face. The viewer has to imagine the stories the eyes have seen or will see during the course of a lifetime.
Hope you all have great stories to tell!
