I see it all the time, especially on instagram. Self portraits. It seems easy enough, you take a picture, or pictures, of yourself and then select the one you think makes you look best.
I don’t know how anyone takes a self portrait, let alone on their phone. I actually tried to take a self portrait with my iPhone the other day. All 8 pictures I took looked ridiculous. Maybe my arms aren’t long enough? Maybe I don’t look good when the camera is only inches away from my face? Maybe the angle is wrong?
Whatever the reason, I suck at self portraits.
Please leave a comment telling me that I’m not alone in this (hopefully I’m not!) OR telling me your secrets on how to take an amazing self portrait.
