Going into this, I thought a self portrait would be simple. Just snap a picture of yourself with your front facing cell phone camera and call it a day. But the internet is flooded with Instagram mirror selfies and Snapchat captures, so I wanted to take it to the next level. After all, this does set the tone for the next 30 days. “How serious are you going to take this?” I asked myself. So I pulled out the Nikon D3200, my tripod, and the wireless shutter remote. The part I hadn’t thought about was how I was going to get in frame and in focus with no assistance. About 30 minutes and 45 shots in, I figured I had enough material that I could find something to work with. After a little touch up using CameraBag 2, this was the result.
