When you are taking a picture of yourself in the mirror I really don't want to see your camera, so I thought I would post how to take a self portrait.
The goal is to see you not your camera.
My son helped illustrate this by taking the pictures of me taking pictures of myself. I took the 2 self portraits using incandescent setting on my Samsung Galaxy Prevail II Boost Mobile phone. I don't have the newest latest greatest phone but I make it work without showing it to everyone else in photos.
Try this and show yourself off rather than your camera.
p.s. this works well in dressing rooms too!
