Super Selfies: Fun with Self-Portraits

I believe that a lot of lomographers out there like to do self-portraits. It is a fun thing to do. Find out why I enjoy taking self-portraits!

Taking a self-portrait is an easy way to express and capture yourself in a photo. You don’t have to ask people to hold your camera for you but you’re still able to freeze the precious moment. I was thinking of buying a Fisheye camera. My friend happened to own one. I borrowed it from her and went out for a shoot . Testing a new camera was not complete until I took some pictures of myself!

Later on, I bought myself a Fisheye No.2 using my Piggy Points, right before my birthday. I wanted to take some pictures of myself with my birthday cake as a memory. So I took out my Fisheye No.2 and captured some pictures.

I brought LC-Wide with me during a trip to Lake Kenyir, Terengganu. I was sitting on a chair and admiring the beautiful scenery of the lake from the terrace. I picked up a flower and put it near my ear. I took a picture of me chilling and enjoying myself on the terrace. I wanted to remember the relaxing moment.

Is taking pictures of my feet considered part of self-portraits? Most of the time I like to take pictures of my own feet. When I look back at those pictures, I will think of the places that I’ve been to.

I will definitely continue to take self portraits and do it more often in the future, especially with my face in the picture!

    I think taking pictures of our own feet is a great idea, could be compiled into a montage of all the places we've walked on! :)
