Mirror, mirror on the wall...

It may be the most cliché photo you'll ever take - but seek comfort in that we all do it..and we secretly love it... I'm taking about the dreaded "Selfportrait in Mirror"-photo...

Mirror self-portraits are only second to Shadow self-portraits when it comes to being frowned upon as 'gosh, I can't believe you took one of those'-photos. That aside, mirror self-portraits does accomplish two very important things;
1) It gets your camera into the photo (and yes, many of us love the look of these cameras almost as much as we enjoy the photos they take...), and
2) It gets you into the photo. As the one always carrying a camera you will eventually realize that you are hardly ever in any photos yourself. This is an oportunity to make yourself the subject (well - second to the camera in some cases...).

So feed that narcissistic side of your personality, combine it with some pride in the equipment you've spent [way too much] money on and step infront of that mirror and join the ranks of others that have been there before and proudly declare "I am - a mirror self-portrait photographer!"
