From a previous thread, I was originally going to start a 52 week project, but a few of us agreed due to time constraints, we'll do a monthly instead. Anyway, I did start the first assignment of the 52 week and since I haven't shared an image yet, I figured I'd share it here. I was going to add it to the critique forum, then got cold feet because of a couple things: 

1. It's my first photo post.

2. It's a self-portrait. The ego would get dinged twice. LOL

For those unfamiliar with my work, I'm a conceptual (fine art) portraitist (I've heard it called many things and I still don't know what to call my work). I create characters or images with a lot of symbolism. I also photograph wildlife and landscapes, but those aren't my main genre.

Therefore for my self-portrait assignment, I decided to photograph myself as a character because that's how I photograph others.
