DIY: How to Take a Selfie! Tips from a Pro Photographer! #Podcast #PhotographyTips #Selfies

I am pretty sure anyone with a smartphone has taken a selfie — or at least attempted to do so. Unfortunately it’s likely to require 20 or more attempts to get one decent photo (or more). The “or more” is often what it’s taken me to get one semi-decent selfie (see below) As you can see, I took it in my home in one of the bathrooms before my smartphone and a forward facing camera.

That said, Cinco de Mayo isn’t about Mexican Independence Day (which is an entirely different date) but about winning the...
