Somerset Life Selfie Portrait Challenge

Self portraits, otherwise known as “selfies” are making a splash and raising the creative bar in the photography industry. Wildly popular on Instagram, Facebook, Flickr, and other social media platforms, our publisher Kellene Giloff (also a talented and artistic photographer) has her own take on this hip trend. Unlike other selfies, Kellene has left much to the imagination in her soft and romantic, faceless image above.

Somerset Life Selfie Challenge:

One of Stampington’s most loved titles, Somerset Life, spotlights artists who find beauty in everyday living through their raw and organic photographs. Our challenge to you is to capture a thoughtfully provoking selfie image without including an actual shot of your face – a photograph that portrays what it means to live authentically.

Guidelines:

  • Be creative! Your photo must include a shot of yourself from the chin down. Feel free to incorporate props like flowers, pearls, ribbon, paint, or other artful embellishments that best represent you.

Prizes:

Qualifying candidates will have a chance to:

  • Be published in an upcoming issue of Somerset Life or Artful Blogging
  • Receive a free gift of their choice of Somerset Life or Artful Blogging
  • Be featured in our Instagram gallery with artist credit

Good luck and have fun with this challenge! We can’t wait to see what you submit.

    How much of one’s self needs to be in the selfie? When you say “from the chin down,” does that mean it has to include your body, or can it show just hands or feet?

    • Bethany says:

      Preferably we’d like it to include some of your body. But an image of just hands or feet can also be artful and we don’t want to limit ideas, so please feel free to send those too.

  2. Roberta says:

    OMG, Kelleen’s photos are stunning! I’d love some notes or a tutorial on how she does it.

  3. Ellen says:
