gone down the drain ... that's what happens when you do selfies in the bathroom

Stuck inside to prevent Corona-infection ... tea-time all day long and leisure to fool around.

Great shot, but two things:
1. Have you actually got any tea to put in the pot, as the stores round here have sold out?
2. Is that a cassette deck I see top left (looks a lot like my old Sony TC204 SD)? :dance4:

Enough tea left, Brian, as I always order my favourite Darjeeling First Flush in kilo packages (4 months left to go) ;)
The cassette deck is the Pioneer CT-95 that has been running for quarter of a century with no problems. It has survived my ASC tape deck.

Change of perspective. The table cloth comes better, the signs of wear on the pot appear stronger and the reflection is less clear.

Needed an emergency image for a webinar I'm conducting next week. I really hate trying to take a self portrait. I was using the OI app on my phone and it kept disconnecting. I just couldn't get the vision in my head out of my camera. After two hours this was my keeper. I'm not thrilled with it, but it's better than an iPhone selfie, or cropping my head out of another pic taken by someone else.

How do you guys get such good self portraits??? Any feedback and tips are greatly appreciated.

I'm no expert on self portraits, but using a camera with fully articulated screen so you can turn it towards you and having either a wired remote or getting the app to work helps.
Putting the camera on a tripod is of course necessary. Hey, I start to think you know all this already!
On thing that I have for my G80 is a battery grip from Jupio, it came with a wireless remote, much cheaper than original grip also (~$80)! Maybe they have one for your EM1?

Sorry, this can't be much of a help.

Edit: Just thought of autofocus with face recognition.

Don't sell yourself below value, Betty.
This portrait looks great with your natural smile. I have great pains to get myself look so natural. The eyes and your expression are perfect, the closeness of the composition, too. I don't think there really is anything to change, except maybe a more "quiet" or monochrome background (but again, that's my taste, the one you chose just adds to your personality). And maybe the camera levelled a little more to the face (but in smartphone-selfie-times the look from upside down has become the most "normal", though I still can't get used to it).

Just relax even a bit more in your next ones, no need of asking someone else to do the job for you. :2thumbs:

I don't know why but it's very hard to get my phone to engage with the Oi Share App.
Sometimes I need to keep trying to connect more than a dozen times.

Anyway, when I get the camera to be recognized by the OI Share I set the timer to 4 seconds delay so I have enough time to put the phone down and pose to the camera.
I also use a tripod.

I reckon that egg was perfectly cooked until you saw your reflection in the spoon, decided to get your camera and set the shot up.
By that time your egg had dried up somewhat and made it more difficult to dip your soldiers in. ;)
Good shot though. :thumbup:
