Self-Portraits / Selfies / Autoretratos / Autoportraits

Discussion in 'Street, Documentary, and Portrait' started by MiguelATF, Oct 28, 2013.

  1. It seems to me there should be a thread devoted to self-portraits - call them what you will, the current flavor-of-the-month name seems to be Selfie - in Spanish it's autoretrato - in French, autoportrait - but since time immemorial it seems that those of us who use cameras to take images of the world around us....also from time to time allow ourselves the indulgence - or perhaps it fulfills some real, deep-seated, psychological need? - of photographing ourselves.

    So here's what I hope may become the beginning of a thread devoted to just this.

    I'll start it off with this one taken of (yep) myself .... with my semi-new (to me, anyway) fisheye lens, a Rokinon 7.5mm, mounted on my Olympus E-PL5.

    I thought there was already a selfie thread. Or maybe my memory is failing me!

  5. Oops. I stand corrected. If there already is a s-p thread, we probably don't need two......do we?
