Plenty of time to do selfies when you are hospitalised ...

Here's some taken in Spain over the years, used to go there a few times a year.

What's a selfie?

Is it just a self-portrait?

Self portraits have been around for hundreds, maybe thousands, of years.

The word "selfie" is new in terms of language.

It arose when it became viable to hold the camera, directly or on a device such as a selfie stick, and take a usable self portrait.  Such photos are quite different from the traditional self portrait taken with a mirror or a timer.  They have an immediacy and informality which makes them a specific art form.

It is a useful word which conveys a specific type of photograph.

So let's use the word for that type of photography, and not dilute it by amalgamating it with the traditional self-portrait.

Leo Fender never stopped improving his instruments, and Asat Classic was practically the last incarnation of Telecaster.  Its playability is improved, and its control panel, bridge and pickups are perfectly compatible with those of the original Telly.

As per Anthony, a proper selfie should not use any mirror or similar to create the final image. One would still need a lens though to capture the image I surmise.

Thus this winter selfie obtained with a 10 mm f/5.6 OP Fisheye-Nikkor ought to qualify? My arms substituted for the selfie stick.

Is it a selfie if you set your camera to self timer?
Must you not hold the camera with your hands and/or selfie stick for it to be an official selfie?

Some of you might have noticed that the majority of my selfies and self portraits are about placing me in the places I visit, mainly for preserving memories but of course also to show off on Facebook and NG as nothing beats making friends jealous about the cool things one does and sees 8)

This self portrait of me in the Norwegian hut named Møllerbua was taken in 2007 during a two week canoeing trip in the Rogen nature reserve on the Swedish/Norwegian border. We left our canoes behind and went for a two day hike due to really bad weather when we stumbled onto this amazing little hut which had actual beds and a wood burning stove, a nice break from freezing my nuts off and bouncing around in the hammock during yet another stormy night.

(https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2138/2051257264_3dbe2d3ea0_o.jpg)
D200 and Tokina 12-24mm

Unknowingly at the time the Møllerbua hut would provide salvation for two more nights six years later, not from foul weather but as a safe haven where we could lick our wounds and fix the mangled canoe from the little endeavour shown in the next pic. Technically not a selfie but if it makes some people feel better it was taken with a human selfie stick whom was programmed not to change any of the settings and to keep me in the middle of the frame :P

4 months earlier, same place, my old office, I modified a camera for IR.
I opened up my old D70 and I took out the AA filter, making the famous D70 a multispectral camera.
Up and until then, I was making IR images with 30s exposures. Amateur :)
Anyhow, this is the first image after the modification, D70 + 28/3.5K + B&W 092 filter.

Sorry, busy busy busy :)

Here's a selfportrait from the amazing winter of 07, there was lot of moist in the air when the temperature dipped wel below zero which created very nice ice crystals and layers of solid ice formed on all the branches creating a very photogenic scene.

The idea behind the image was to use it as a Christmas card but that never materialised.

Akira, that was Kurt's idea (Kurt Ballou).  That side of my cab is a ported 15, puts out too much low end for most mics.  It's a guitar rig btw, though a baritone one.

Thanks, Tristin, for the details.  Then you won't need a bass player.  :D  Sorry for my initial mis-spelling of your name which is corrected now.

I don't mean to be negative and I don't mean to be picky, that's the last thing I am.
I remember Anthony pointing out the difference between selfies and self-portraits and ever since I am seeing more self-portraits than selfies.
Just to clarify my thoughts as I understand it, a selfie is an image that you take by holding and pointing the camera towards you (the modern way - even by using a selfie stick); a self-portrait would be taking an image of yourself via a reflection or by situating you camera on a tripod and triggering it remotely (the old fashioned way).

Of course I am not saying that you shouldn't post your self-portraits in a selfie thread, on the contrary.
What I am saying is that I will open a new thread for self-portraits just to be clear on the difference between the two :)
We don't want to misguide the world wide web, do we?

Hi Jakov , how do you qualify for a "selfie" ? you have to handhold the camera ?
Title: Re: [Theme] I'd like to see your selfies!
Post by: Jakov Minić on July 06, 2016, 12:18:17
From what I understand, a selfie is when you point the camera at yourself and hold it in your hands or by using a selfie stick :)
If you shoot yourself as a reflection or if you shoot yourself by using a tripod, you're making a self portrait.
I believe that Anthony pointed this out somewhere within this thread, and that is why I created a separate thread "self-portraits".

http://nikongear.net/revival/index.php/topic,2754.0.html

Pedro, don't get me wrong, there is no real harm done by mixing it up. I just thought of pointing out that there is a difference between the two, hence the newly accepted term "selfie".

Jakov, a question since you have a made point of order on the difference between selfie and self portrait. If one uses an articulating or flip screen to frame the image is that a selfie or a self portrait?   ;D :D

I love those fisheyes too.

Thanks, Anthony.  The image would rather fit into the "minimalistic image" thread, I guess?   :o

Nice colours.   Minimalistic or a new (sub)-topic, the haircut-selfies  ;)

Thanks, John.  A haircut-selfies thread could be too minor.   :o

The only thing missing is some aurora around the pole, Akira. :)

Playing around with the infrared camera again...  ;)

Until now, I've looked at the adult human ear as a chaotic bit of gristle.  I was quite wrong.

Hahahaaa, Akira, that's a good one!  :D

Woodley (or Willie?), I'm glad I changed the way you look at ears.  :)

Nice, Jakov!  What's good about the fisheye is that you don't need any "stick" to shoot selfies even when you don't use a tripod.  :)

An adequate thanks to Susanne. And, thanks Akira. Nothing beats a fish-eye when it comes to selfies. Unfortunately, I am not in a possession of a selfie stick...

Here is an amphibian one. Really brings the best out of me :D
