Self-portrait anxiety

It's been a long time since I've had any sort of proper picture taken of myself. I decided a few days ago that I would get cleaned up, put a little makeup on, put on my Sunday go-to-meetin' clothes, pull out the tripod and do a self-portrait. I had a self-portrait assignment in one of my classes and it was absolutely the hardest assignment I've had yet. One would think that taking a picture of yourself couldn't be difficult, but for me it was. First there's the technical aspect of getting a sharp picture when you have nothing and no one to focus on. I found out that a water bottle is a great assistant. Then there's the whole thing of smiling for the camera. Well, I won't go on, but it'll be a long time before I do that again.

I'd love to know which one you think is best. Leave me a comment, please!

Oh! I love them all! You're so pretty dear! I think the top 2 are my favorites. But I quite like the bottom one, as well.
