While living for a month on an island in Maine, John Marshall gave himself a 30-day project  called Sunset Silhouette Selfies.  He had three rules:  1) He couldn’t have help. He used a ten-second timer, pressed the button and had to run into the shot.  2) He only used props that he made or found around his cabin.  3) His tools were nothing special. Mostly, he used cardboard from the island dump, a common kitchen knife and a cheap pair of scissors.  For more images go here.
