Alter Ego w038


This is an exercise about exploring the not-self (read: alter-ego).

Materials Needed

–   timer

– Access to costumes or props

–  smartphone or camera


  1.  spent 2 minutes Gathering two looks with props
  2.  spend 8 minutes taking photos of yourself posing with these objects
  3.  spend 2 minutes reviewing the photos and pick 2 for “submission”
    1. in this case submission might be a step you take further,  like a printed gallery or a social media post,  or just an opportunity to use your editing eye and say if I were to show anyone these photos I would pick the best and would be it.
these are the two I have “picked for submission” after doing this exercise


 this exercise is inspired by Cindy Sherman.  her self-portraits channel stereotype and archetype to create a sense of a character and a story with a look.
