I understand that some transgirls take photos of themselves when they are en femme!
Really! Did you ever hear of such a thing?*
Seriously, I take photos of myself en femme nearly every time I femulate. I do it for two reasons:
1. To feed this blog. (The blog is hungry for photos and it must be fed.)
2. To see if my femulation is good, bad, or in-between. (Photos are more revealing than a mirror.)
Self photography is an art. I probably discard half the self-photos I take because there is something technically wrong with them (usually related to focus, framing and/or lighting).
Having tinkered with self-photography for over 40 years, I could write forever on the topic, but why re-invent the wheel when somebody already invented it.
Jennine Jacob, founder of the Independent Fashion Bloggers, wrote How to Take Gorgeous Self Portraits. She uses the same cameras as I do, so I can attest to the truth of what she wrote. At the end of her post are links to other related posts that you can provide additional help.
Have Fun!* Which reminds me of a joke: How many transgirls does it take to change a light bulb? The answer is three. One to climb the ladder to change the light bulb, one to steady the ladder, and one to take photos of the event.
