This is a great theme, not the very first time we've done it but I always find it fascinating.MOC 279 - Theme: SELFIE
A modern cultural phenomenon, selfies are everywhere. I'm currently doing a presentation in work on the art of the Self Portrait, so I would love to see how mobitoggers approach the theme. It can be posed, funny, accidental, bad, abstract, or wholly professionally presented. I know not everyone is comfortable in front of a lens, myself included, so how will you approach it?
People of my generation think the 'selfie' is for the young, but artists have painted themselves for 100's of years and as its often pointed out, if you want to take people portraits but you have no willing subjects you will always have yourself to practice on.
I find the psychology fascinating, why do we dislike looking at ourselves? Are we always wanting to be thinner/fatter/prettier/more handsome. Are our noses too big, are our eyes in the wrong place and oh those wrinkles! We are what we are, this is how others see us and unless you have a shed load of money, its how you'll look till the end of your days!
I'd love to see your presentation Bill.
