The Daguerreian Process

gave birth to the first self-portraits. It was invented by the French painter Louis Daguerre, around 1830.

I know a lot of internet people are averse to showing a human face behind the nick, but hey, maybe some of you have exhibitionist tendencies like I do at times, and want to share.
Okay, maybe I just want an excuse to take care of myself better and take pics more often.

I'll start, because it's only fair. I have about the quality of Daguerre's camera, but my nails are on flick.
Imgur album, contains a little bare skin too if you scroll down, gasp

Nice!!! Lookin' pretty good there, Misty. :)

I don't really mind showing myself much - and a lot of people here know what I look like anyway. I'm afraid this is the only semi-recent picture I have of myself, though, and it's from a couple months ago.

Yay faces \o/

I'm notoriously un-photogenic and never take pictures of myself, so you'll have to do with a still from on of my youtube videos that is not entirely horrible. :ghost:

I had to scour 5 minutes of video to find 1 frame in which I was not looking grumpy :ghost:

I was alluding to my complete inability to hold a not-spontaneous nice expression, not my actual looks. :ghost:

Yep i have complete heterochromia, but its not as cool as it sounds, whenever I or anyone else wants to make me in a game like the sims, there's always a problem, because most games with character creators don't have Heterochromia for humans, despite the fact that pets in the sims can have heterochromia. in the end one of my two eye colors must be picked for the character. :)

As the photo shows, I don't particularly like taking photos of myself.

I found a way of cheering myself up afterwards, though.
