The Challenge of Self Photographing

So, I’ve been trying to take some pictures today to go on draft patterns and, well, I’d forgotten how tricky it is.

The first thing you have to consider is, do you take one where you can see the camera/phone (I use my iPhone because the quality is so good), or do you take one where it can be cut out.

Then there is what face to pull and where to look, this is especially tricky when taking photographs in a mirror.  Looking at yourself in the mirror often seems to lead to strangely wayward eyes in the picture.

Believe it or not I was looking at myself, but instead, I just look a little shifty….

Then there is the shaky-ness you get from using a hand held rather than a tripod mounted camera…

Looking grumpy and at the phone and with shakes, this is not good!!

But then every now and again you seem to get a good one 🙂 which is a relief or I’d probably just give up all together!!  Well, I say good, as far as I’m concerned it’s not bad of me and you can see what I’m trying to get a picture of!!

It will do!
