It occurred to me the other day that if I’m going to write a blog about my life then I’m probably going to have to be in some of the pictures, and you know what that means… selfies. It’s not that I’m against the selfie, I fully support them, but I am not good at them. I need about a thousand takes just to get a photo that looks even sort of okay. There is something so enviable about those girls, you know the ones, who have perfected their selfie game to one shot that takes less then a minute and looks totally flawless, duck-lips and all. Okay, I make fun mostly out of jealousy.
A huge part of writing this blog is for my personal growth, to learn new things and accept new challenges. So I decided to embrace something that I would normally run from and learn how to take a good selfie. And if I’m going to spend all this time wading through internet tutorials and Pinterest infographics then it would be unfair of me to withhold my new found knowledge. So, without further ado, I introduce my first feature, How To Take A Selfie. I've been practicing...
As a photographer I’m familiar with all of the rules for taking portraits; nose shadows, flattering lighting,and making sure nothing in the background is growing out of the subjects head. But when it come to taking pictures, especially candid ones of myself I’m am terrible. When in doubt ask Google, unless it's a medical question because never ends well. As I was scouring Pinterest for tutorials it occurred to me that I should share my new found knowledge with you. The selfie possibilities are endless and I am terrible at all of them. That being said I am totally open to any styles you would like to see me explore, and definitely any tips and tricks you’d like to offer, I need all the help I can get.
