All of those selfies w/ my Nokia Lumia



Ahhh, the selfie.  There’s a song about them and even a new TV show that bears the name.  I kinda hate most of them, but then I thought I’d take them to another level. Obviously, I’d be in them (BONUS), plus I’d use my Windows Phone as the consistent prop and I’d inject bits of awesome inspiration, into every shot.

There are 25 pictures in this collection that I did over a few weeks, recently.  There were kind of a hit and I’ve been asked to put them all in one spot because my friends didn’t always see the “selfie of the day”.  Now they are here in one spot.  I hope you like them as much as I enjoyed making them.

All 25 images were shot on the phone and edited on the phone.


  • Nokia Lumia 920 (the red one in  most shots)
  • Nokia Lumia 1020 (the white one in some shots)
  • Fhotoroom – my workhorse editing app and also the community where I first displayed these images!
  • Fantasia – another editing app I used for tone-mapping and some precise edits
  • Melange – app I used for cutting and pasting (see #22 & #25)
  • Tripod

These are not in chronological order of release.  #11 was the one that started it all, for a WinPhan selfie contest. Which is your favorite?


1.  As some of you know I’ve been about my fitness lately.

JD Nap App2.  This is one of my favorites and it even became my online dating profile picture.

3.  Happy Friday. Using the ole Lumia as a megaphone!

4.  This was my broken heart image.

JD Bells(1)

5.  I love me some Bell’s Beer, brewed in my hometown of Kalamazoo, Michigan.

JD Money App

6.  This phone ain’t made of money. Or is it?  Hmmmmm….


7.  I decided to use the phone…as…a…as a PHONE!  Craziness, I know!

JD Pacified

8.  Sometimes a dude just needs to be pacified.

What? That’s not weird, is it??


JD Shaves

9.  I’ve always known the Lumia was pretty darn sharp, but who knew I could shave with the thing?

Post Night of Bad Decisions App

10.  Yeah, it was a rough night. I’m pretty sure that I don’t want to talk about.

Thankfully, I don’t remember much so you can’t MAKE me talk about it.


11.  Ahhh, the comfort of aTed-eBear.  Get it?


12.  This is one of my glamorous Hollywood wood nights in…by myself with Netflix and my phone.


13.  Every once and a while I get a REALLLY great idea.


14.  I just read that I’m sabotaging my fitness and weight goals by not getting enough sleep.


15.  It was cold so I had fire behind and fire in my hand.


16.  I called this one “broken phone” and people thought I actually broke my phone.

It was just a fake Apple iOS screen. 😉


17.  Would you make me the happiest man and accept this ring…tone?


18.  The phone is our most important tool.  The cool thing is that you can actually hammer a nail
with a Lumia. It’d probably invalidate your warranty, so I wouldn’t recommend it.


19.  Play Ball!!!


20.  Some people can love their phone too much.  This is a illustration of what that might look like.


21.  This shadowy image is one of my favorites.

I like the light play with the physical aspect of the phone.


22.  My own personal drone.  This would be a great idea.


23.  Reusable grocery bags are ridiculous, but this would be a way to make it happen.


24.  Flowers for you!  You don’t need water and they never lose their color.


25.  The last shot of the series.  Magical Cortana!
