When it comes to having my photograph taken, I've begged, pleaded, and threatened my friends and family to leave me out of the shot. If I see a camera that I'm not holding, I run the other way. Before I got sick I was thin and fit. But due to Lyme Disease, a lagging thyroid, fibromyalgia, and the inability to exercise to any real effect, those days are far behind me. I never liked being photographed but in the past I'd at least suck it up and allow myself to be photographed at family gatherings and such. It doesn't help that I have a lazier-than-ever eye. I detest seeing photos of myself with that wonky eye staring off at who knows what.
But today I decided to experiment a little bit with photographing myself. I didn't take the time for proper makeup, to set up a good background, or arrange any good light, hence the graininess in a couple of these shots. Maybe next time. Mostly I was just playing. Does anyone know how to Photoshop away the bags under the eyes?
