A Creative Approach to a Selfie Photo

My SELFIE in Venice

I am always trying to think out of the box when it comes to photography. Even when I'm taking photos of non real estate events, I like to find a way to make any photo compelling. I rarely am in a photo as I much prefer to take the photo than be in it. Once in a while, I'll use the tripod and join a group of people for an event. I have very few photos of me. I must prefer taking photos than being in them.

On a recent trip to Venice I was playing around with reflections and this happened. A photo of me, taking a photo of me. My Selfie

Just for fun - a photo of me on the Grand Canal in Venice Italy.

This is a photo for the Real Life - Selfie Category of Dick Greenberg's Contest

Janis- I love it!!!   My good friend and I joke that we are the only ones taking photos and chronicling our dinners and parties.  So, we always take pictures of each other so that we'll have a record that we were there.LOL  Love your selfie!

I like it. It is a creative selfie even if it was not done intentionally, but isn't that the way some very important discoveries have been made, accidentally!

Very cool, Janis!  And how wonderful that the door had the reflective ability to provide that shot!

Now, THIS is what I'm talking about, Janis! This is what I look for in a photograph--show me a new perspective, make me think in a different way. Fabulous! (And I"m with you--no selfies for me, as I LOVE being behind the camera).
