Photographers, what is the difference between a “Selfie” and a Self Portrait?
This is an interesting question. For me a “Self Portrait” means to tell something about the photographer or the photographers place in the environment. Or using your own body as a vessel to explain an abstract concept. It may be unflattering to the appearance or character of the photographer but it is a true expression. Where a “Selfie” is entirely almost always a production of vanity. Intentionally making a photo the is purely and only for aesthetic gratification in one self. At length and in moderation is not bad at all. However over indulgence in the practice is becoming rampant.
These are examples of a “Self Portrait”
draws moth to flame
humans to fame
beast to blame
shame shame shame
