Favourite Articles on Self-Portraits


Do you take self-portraits? I don't often. I like the idea of taking them, but the process daunts me. It takes more work to get a nice photo of yourself than of other people. I'm also not comfortable in front of the camera.

Nevertheless, self-portraits are a great way to improve your photography. That is why I hope I can get over my fear of the camera and start taking more self-portraits in the future.
