I don’t know if you guys know this, but my mom usually takes my outfit pictures. She started off taking my pictures purely for the convenience factor (we live together), but then we ended up liking our picture-taking outings. A lot. We started location scouting, conceptualizing shots and matching outfits with locations. For us, it’s a way to spend time together, bond, laugh and of course make art.
This time I decided to try my hand at self-portraits. I’ve taken self-portraits before and all too often they’ve ended in blurry, out-of-focus pictures and a lot of disappointment. I recently got myself a wireless remote so I don’t have to constantly run back and forth from the camera. It makes a big difference!

I’d still prefer to have someone take photos of me since it’s faster (in so many pictures I was outside of the frame without realizing it!), but there is something so satisfying about creating a picture of yourself entirely BY yourself.
Have you ever tried taking self-portraits? Do you have any tips to share?
