It is the ultimate means of self-analysis, presenting an opportunity for self-reflection, self-expression and self-promotion. Taking on self portrait photography can be a great way to improve your skills, and practice the trade when you feel uninspired, don’t have an available model or an interesting subject. You can work yourself into poses that are just plain crazy, convey all kinds of emotions, dress up or dress down, go into the woods or just look out through the window of your living room.
