Today, we are checking back in with Inner Excavation contributor Vivienne McMaster. I asked Viv to share some inspiration that would gently push you to dive deeper into the world of self-portraits, and I am delighted to share her gorgeous photos and wisdom.
As you continue to explore your inner and outer landscapes here in Chapter 5, I hope you will think about the "dangers of self-portraiture" that Viv shares below and turn the camera toward yourself.
Vivienne McMaster is a photographer, visual storyteller and workshop leader with a passionate, supportive, rule free approach to getting creative with taking photos.
She has a big love for helping people find the photographer within themselves. She believes, and knows from experience, that self-portraits can be incredibly healing (and also so much fun). She has a brand new website where she often shares stories that entwine images and words together.

Update: The Inner Excavate-along was a free read-along on my blog in the summer of 2012. All the posts are here on the blog, but I'm not directing a group through it with newsletters etc. at this time. I hope you enjoy following along!
