Outer Space Self Portraits

I love taking creative self portraits. Back in high school is when I found a love for it. I had just moved to a new state and I didn’t have friends, so self portraiture gave me an outlet for my emotions and creativity. Everything I went through came out in my portraits, and I think it helped me process a lot.

This shoot came to me one night as I watched my space light projector dance across the ceiling in my room.

For an extra boost of texture and color, I purchased body glitter. For the setup, I hung a white sheet on my backdrop stand and turned off all the lights, except the space light. The variety of colors and lasers made for an interesting look, and I am extremely proud of how it turned out!

I’m so thankful to be able to have an outlet when life gets tough. Anytime I feel burnt out, I do this, and it helps.
