The awkward self portrait…
Maybe it’s just me.
Selfies are everywhere, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter. I see plenty at work in the Photo Lab, and there are Flickr pages dedicated to high quality self portraits.
Usually if someone points a camera in my direction, I will simply smile, or else strike a silly pose. But when I do it myself, I just feel like a lemon. I’m awkward, I don’t know whether to smile, be serious or silly, what to do.
I’m going to keep on trying this selfie thing, but I will apologize in advance for the terrible, awkward looking images I am going to come up with. My hope is that they will improve with practice.
Maybe it’s just me, or do other people feel slightly ridiculous when taking their own picture?
