The photographer


I think every photographer like to make self portraits. It is not easy and perhaps not very interesting as it sounds but you have challenge in installing your camera, arrange precise focus and make sure exposure and light is proper. Making self portraits outside requires even more details such as facing the attention of people passing by. I know with digital cameras and smart phones it is easy to stretch your hand and make a self portrait and publish it on Instagram or Facebook but I still keep preferring the analogue old-school way. No, I do not need mirror as in the below photo to do my self portrait sometimes a shiny teaspoon is also enough to have reflections of my face.
