I have a confession to make....... I hate selfies! I love self portraits! You’re wondering what’s the difference? Here’s my opinion:
Selfies are quick, spur of the moment pics of yourself alone or with others. Self portraits have a bit more thought, creativity and artistic fun behind them.
Take your self portraits with a tripod and remote shutter release button. Again find your great background, set up your camera, set the timer if you want, then pose and press your shutter button. Hold your pose an extra 2 seconds to prevent image blur. Practice to get that perfect shot! Don't forget your pose: turn slightly to the side, back leg is straight, front leg is bent. Take lots of pics. It takes 5-10 shots for even me to get the perfect image.
Your tripod and shutter button works great for outfit of the day pics, family & friends shots and allows you to be in all your images. Remember to edit! Check out my quick editing tips on my last blog/YouTube post.
I can’t wait to see your self portraits!
Until next time! God Bless!!
