Self portraits or Selfies have nothing to do with the silly images we see of celebrities wearing a new dress or promoting a make-up line on social media. The flim flam of twitter and instagram may have discredited one of the oldest forms of Photography but we can reclaim it by making Selfies that say something about us. Funny or Serious - it's your choice. What's your mood today. If you want to say something specific, you could make a sign and hold it up like Bob Dylan
Find an interesting location - place your camera or phone safely on a flat surface and set the Self Timer.
You might want to do this inside - in your favourite space in the house - or maybe your bedroom - or find a quiet corner of the garden. You could even place your camera on a log during your daily walk.
If you have a Tripod - this is the time to use it.
Take care with Focus & check the picture afterwards.
The Self Timer symbol is universal and you should find a button on the back or top of your camera. Press the button and select the symbol with 10 next to it.
If you have a DSLR camera you may see the symbol next to the motordrive symbol
