Saturdays Online: The Importance of Selfie!

Yes they are annoying.  But I a recent blog article I read by Kim Ence, encourages us to Selfie and explains the importance of the candid family and friends photo.  So we aren't talking about that self-absorbed "This is me" at some event or special location, we are saying :  "photogaphers need to step in front of the camera from time to time".  Let someone else take that family photo and let us see who you are!

Selfie's can also be artsy if you work at it a little bit.


  1. Funny how many of us did this in the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s with self-timers and our 35mm cameras (as well as a few others) and nobody paid attention. Now with digitals everyone does it and a selfie is to be somehting special. I say -- keep on shootiing selfie or not.

  2. I'm with you. This article is the only somewhat positive spin I can put on the 'selfie' of today. I think it was more fun and more meaningful pre-phone camera. But almost evreything was more fun when it was more random and spontaneous. Now everyone will take a selfie if they have their phone handy.

    Except me that is. My phone is usually turned off........
