While taking my outfit photos myself is not my first choice (I tend to vastly prefer the results when Josh takes them), I do have sort of a ridiculous amount of experience with self-portraiture. My thesis project in grad school was all self-portraits, though I always had a helper. (I would frame, focus, and meter the shot with a friend standing in, and then have her actually press the button for me.) Since occasionally doing my own outfit photos recently, I do have a few thoughts that I thought I would share.
