Taking the picture

Check your hair and clothing in a mirror, press the shutter button to trigger the self-timer countdown, and then sit on the stool. Once the camera fires, play back the photo on the screen. Did you zoom in close enough? Are you in focus and centered in the frame? How does the lighting look?

Shoot another round. Once you get the basic setup looking good, experiment with different angles and facial expressions. One advantage of taking your own portrait is that you can be more creative. Remember, you can always erase the embarrassing framesor all of them. Remember, too, that self- portraits don't have to be dull headshots; they can be every bit as interesting as any other photo.
