    I tried once but it was a disaster. But I really want to plan and get an excellent one.

    I find most self portraits extremely tacky and pretentious, especially the ones where people take shots of themselves while they’re holding the camera. I do agree there are few creative ones, but most of them are just horrible cliches of what some people think a photographer is.

    I have not tried my hand at self portraits but surely would like to attempt one in the future.

    The trick to self photography is two things, 1) a timer and 2) a tripod. As long as you have these two things you can do amazing self photography, like you are the model. Now don’t get me wrong depending on the creativity and the pose you are trying to pull of it can be quite tricky, so it does take time, planning and a lot of patients with yourself.
