You don't see too many people taking self portraits these days, and I think one of the reasons is because they're ridiculously hard to take. I've tried and failed on several occasions to take self portraits, and I've learned a few basic things through trial and error that I thought I would share with you.

Get creative with angles, with lighting, and with editing. I had so much fun editing this batch of photos with bokeh overlays and seeing how different one picture could look. It gives them a fun, artsy feel, and since I am rather an artsy person I love that.
I hope these little tips inspired you to take some self portraits! And if you do, let me know! Make a blog post with your self portrait experiments and leave me the link in a comment. Or post one on Instagram and tag me in it, @hannahlpgirl and hashtag it with #teamselfportrait. If you want to see some more incredible self portraits, head over to Janelle's blog, she's super talented and pretty much a master/expert/genius when it comes to modeling for herself.
Till next time guys!
