Selfies

Maybe it is just me – but I am really tired of looking at photos of the backs of peoples phones. I really don’t mind selfies and behind-the-scenes images, but all of the images of the backs of peoples phones along with the words on their shirts (and the backgrounds) being reversed just frustrates me.

Just because you CAN do a thing doesn’t mean that you SHOULD do a thing.

If you want to take self-portraits (selfies) that is fine. But learn how to use your equipment so that the camera (phone) isn’t in the image. This detracts from the main point of your image, which is you, and focuses the viewers eyes onto your phone. And NOBODY cares about looking at the back of your phone.

Also, if you have words on your clothing (or in the image at all) and they are backwards you need reconsider posting that image.
