Self Portraits (Ottawa photographers)

As annoying as it is to carry, I always travel with a tripod, so I am always taking self-portraits. (I don’t trust asking regular people to take my photos anymore because they have failed far too many times, but I didn’t find out back in the days of film until after I returned home from my trip.)¬† ūüė¶

I just came upon¬†a website called Photo Tuts¬†today, in which I went over an article featuring “100 Seriously Cool Self Portraits“.¬† I was totally blown away by so many A.M.A.Z.I.N.G self portraits taken by so many talented people.¬† I have been inspired.¬† When the nicer weather comes, I am definitely going out to take a bunch of self portraits.¬† Especially in this day and age of digital photography, I think that everyone should grab their camera and have fun taking fun and original self-portraits¬†(I’m not talking about those annoying ones people take in front¬†of the mirror in their bathroom either.)¬† A tripod will help you be able to set up your shot much better than hand holding your camera (all though those kinds of shots can be fun, as long as you’re not¬†in your freaking bathroom or in front of a mirror.)

But before you go there, I wanted to add a few self-portraits that I have taken over the years. (Some have been scanned from prints in the days before digital photography.)¬† ūüėČ

Here are a few photos that I have taken while on my world travels.¬† Enjoy.¬† ūüėÄ
