Re: self portrait

Using a mirror works regardless of which camera model you own.  Bonus points awarded if the object you use as a "mirror" doesn't actually look like a mirror (like the "bean" in Chicago).


Nearly every camera model I can recall using has a self-timer.  Your manual would explain how to activate it.  It helps to have a tripod to support the camera.


For anything more specific, we'd need to know which camera model you are using.
