Title: Post Your Self Portraits Here
Post by: Andy_Hodapp on October 14, 2012, 01:00:22 AM
While most self portraits or selfies are stupid photos of girls with there lips stuck out like a duck and there backs hunched over, I would like to see what Canon Rumors can do with a camera in there hands and themselves as the subject.  I just got a Yongnuo YN-560 II and a Cowboy Studio Trigger, I wanted to try some portrait shots but no one else was around, this is what I came up with using a Canon T1i and a 50mm 1.8 II.

How many Shots did you take to get it right? I found it really hard to get a good shot with my camera on the tripod.

I just used the tripod to hold my flash, I held the camera with my hands, it took about 15 shots to get this one.

FYI, there's already a long-running thread on this topic.
