I think Ellen Fisher Turk just gave me a good idea. From her main page:
I use image-still or video to help women see past who they think they are. I photograph women who suffer from negative body image brought on by rape, incest, eating disorders, cancer or just plain life.
This is an invitation to participate in a process that will completely change how you view yourself.
I'm not a skilled photographer mind you but I don't see why I can't do that for myself. So I've started a bit of an experiment in hopes that it will help me overcome my hated of having my picture taken.
Starting earlier this week when I come home from work I pull out my digital camera and I take a few pictures of myself. Nothing fancy just a simple pose in what I wore to work that day (three button polo and basic dress slacks). I usually take about 3-5 pictures. So far I think it is helping me overcome the fear.
Who knows maybe one day I'll get bold enough to not only be able to take a picture without being disgusted but I might even get bold enough to actually post pictures of myself on a regular basis.
This should be a grand experience.
