It’s time for this months photography challenge! My instagram feed keeps filling up with selfies, so I thought it would be fun to have a SELFIE challenge! There are several ways in which you can get a selfie. The most common way is to take a photo of yourself with your phone. A lot of phones now have the ability to flip the camera around and use the LCD screen to see yourself while positioning everything. Another option is to use your camera. I know that there are several camera’s out there that the LCD screen will swivel around making it easier as well. Some cameras though, like mine, don’t have this option. Don’t feel discouraged or left out. You can also use a timer or a mirror. There isn’t a wrong way to take a selfie! As long as you are the one taking a photo of yourself, it’s considered a selfie!
The first page today is by one of our new CT members, Lego. I adore the selfie of these two having a great time together. Taking selfies with others can certainly bring out laughter and smiles. I adore all the blues she used along with the fun journaling.
