Self-portrait 31

When a subject has long hair, I think it’s very easy to make their portraits all about their hair and not about them personally.  I admit I have done this with my self-portraits.  After using that as a crutch over the past several months, I now have a new challenge.  My lack of long hair will push me to be more inventive and thoughtful when creating my self-portraits.  I’m interested to see what I’ll come up with.
