We spend an awful lot of time learning how to take portraits of our friends, family, and even our pets.
In fact, there are scads of portrait tutorials on our website that cover all aspects of composition, lighting, framing, posing, and so forth.
But, you know what photographers often don’t learn how to do?
And we’re not talking selfies with your phone either…
Just like any other portrait, there’s an art and a science to creating an eye-catching self-portrait. But, because we become our own subject, it’s a tougher task. Not just because we have to alternate back and forth between being behind the camera and in front of it either…
Plenty of photographers just make terrible subjects! After all, we like being behind the lens, not in front of it, right?
Nonetheless, having some self-portrait skills won’t kill you, and it might just help you create better portraits of other people as well.
In the video below, Tommy Reynolds gives us a quick five-minute overview of how to take a self-portrait. Follow along and get some great tips that should help you overcome the selfie blues and create a portrait of yourself that really shines!
