I felt like sitting underneath the tripod today.

As a bonus to using a unique angle, it was easy to focus. On manual focus, I just held my left hand out at the approximate level my face would be at once I was sitting down, focused with my right hand on a forgiving ap (usually between 3.2 and 5 for self portraits, while I’d usually shoot at 2.8 or lower) put the camera on interval timer shooting and ta-da.

    Oh, good. I was wondering if you’d been using a different focus technique for all these self-portraits. Thanks for sharing!

    I love the first one. Your eye is so sharp and the composition is fun.

    These all look so good. You cant even tell they’re selfies. Thanks for the tips!

    You have such a pretty eye color. And how are you so comfortable in front of the camera. I feel like a big dork.
