WebdesignerDepot Staff By WDD Staff  |  Apr. 24, 2009

ScreenshotAfter reviewing your feedback on last week’s photomontage design challenge and knowing that you truly enjoyed the experience, I think it’s time for another great design challenge…

Do you recognize the picture on the left? That’s Sharbat Gula, an Afghan woman whose photo became the world’s most famous portrait after appearing on the cover of National Geographic magazine in 1985.

In this week’s challenge, we’re concentrating on self portraits, having just covered this in today’s article: How to Take Excellent Portrait Photos

Will you possibly be the face of the next world famous portrait? You certainly have the power to do it! Are you ready for the challenge? Go grab your camera and get ready for some serious fun!



Create a unique self portrait. You can use any style or technique that you wish as long as you’re featured in the photo in some shape or form. Photos can be edited and manipulated in any way you want.
