Why take a self-portrait? Do you like to take all the photos or do you want to be in all your photos? Read on to learn why I love taking self-portraits.
I asked myself this a long time ago “Why? Why do I love to participate in my photos? Am I a self-portrait freak?” I didn’t know because I’ve never thought about this before until someone told me “You are a self-portrait freak” and I thought “Of course not!!”. But 5 seconds later, I said “Yes I am!”.
It’s simple. I am in a world that I want to get in my pictures. The images that I can show consist of my life and me, and I am sharing my special moment with the world. Taking a self-portrait freezes time and that special moment deserves to be shared through the photo.
How many times have you wished to do something you saw in a photo and thought “I really want to do it, I really want to go there, I really want to be that guy in the picture”.
Someday, you will be there. You got it! It’s just an unforgettable second — a moment when you don’t care about anything else.
The most important moments will be saved in your senses. You are the only one who could recognize the importance of that moment and the memories that come with it. Why don’t you stop the time and get a ticket to go back to that special moment anytime you want?
This is just my vision, my opinion: everyone has a moment where they deserve to do a self-portrait.
