If you’re like me, then you too are your own favorite model. You not only have the looks and camera presence, but there’s an amazing relationship between photographer and subject. These can be key ingredients for the magic to happen in the lens. Look at the magic right here, that I caught during ‘Movember. Don’t worry, the stache is stashed away now.
There are challenges to getting a great selfie. It takes more that mere aesthetic prowess. You can stick your arm out and generally aim in the right direction, but you’re better than that. Our beautiful faces deserve perfect framing, not a guess. You can also use the front facing camera, but please. You can’t entrust the capture of your image, your personality and your self-important brand, to inferior megapixels. There has to be a better way, right “me”? You guessed it “myself”. Hey “I”, show the good people our secret to better selfies.
I can’t take all of the credit for my pictures that you see here on the left. Sure, the look, wardrobe and character driven attitude are all mine, but you have to give credit to the artist on the other side of the lens. Oh, I almost forgot that I am the photographer too.
Yup, this is a set of “selfie” shots. Of course, I had to take the selfie to the next level and thankfully there are some Windows Phone apps to help me out. I also used a bit of lighting and a tripod. Sometimes you need more than a straightened out arm and a good guess as to where you’ll be in the faming. Maybe I didn’t get full-on selfies. Maybe I’ll call them “helpies”. Ya know…cuz I had help.
Whatever you want to call them, let’s see some more and introduce you to the apps involved.
