Taking pictures of yourself is not always easy but if you want to learn how to take a picture of yourself that is slightly more flattering than when others take pictures of you then here are some great tips to capture quality photos of just you.
Things You'll Need
- Digital Camera
- Video Camera
- Cell Phone Camera
Many girls are notorious for taking pictures of themselves in the bathroom in front of the mirror. There is just something sexy about a girl getting gussied up and snapping a cute photo of herself posing for her camera accessorized cell phone. To do this if you've never tried just go to your bathroom and stand in front of the mirror pointing your camera phone towards the mirror. This will allow you to be more fluent in your post and not have to really look at the camera but instead make the camera and angels provided by mirror do all the work.
If you have a Mac you've probably got a built in digital web cam or maybe your have PC has a webcam attached to it. This is an easy way to snap a photo of yourself just being you. I like to take a cordless mouse or a mouse with a long cord and step back from the computer to get my whole body in the shot or if its just a facial then to just sit up with good posture and take a picture clicking the mouse. Try not to look at the mouse while your doing it or your eyes will be all bug eyed in the shot.
If you don't like those two try getting a video camera or a digital camera with a timed feature that allows you to hit the button to take picture and then you will have 10 seconds to pose for the camera flash. Video cameras are great too because you can just video tape yourself and then go into a program like iMovie or Windows movie maker and take a still shot of the video. The quality isn't always that great but once in while you can get some amazing pictures using this method. Now that's how to take a good profile picture!
