How many pictures of your face do you take at a time?

The news had a segment on teenagers pressured to make Instagram posts. The girls said they made a whole photo shoot out of it. Girls and guys said they would take fifty or a hundred pictures to get one good one.

Me:


It is far more challenging with my brother. Is he looking at the camera? Are his eyes open? Is he smiling?

I don't take photos of my face unless it's to document some skin condition I'm concerned about to send to my wife.

Sometimes I'm in photos taken by others, and I hope to represent the best image I can when that occurs, but doesn't occupy much of my thought.

My Facebook ( I know, Facebook is evil, but I use it for the marketplace and to keep up with how the political morons are trying to further steal my freedom) profile picture was taken over 3 years ago, a family photo. I haven't facilitated pictures of myself since, though I know I end up in a few due to church functions; for some reason people take pictures of the preachers.

Selfies... I found selfies ridiculous... a symbol of the selfish and narcisic society of today.
Not too much about the selfie itself, but the constant publishing of it by people.

Maybe I should post my favorite picture of myself. It was taken in 1995 by the only true friend I ever had with my first ever digital camera, a Casio QV-20.

Probably not, it's too special to me, and Google is watching. I did see my own picture on Facespook at a Mac User Group meeting, so I know there exists a shadow profile on me.

The history of the selfie before the cell phone is interesting. Some say Robert Cornelius in 1839, others point to spray-painted hand prints in caves.

edit:
The latest episode by Phillip DeFranco is titled Wow...The Future Of Deepfakes Is Here, Alabama Outrage, Google Censorship & Manipulation Allegations. It explains why you don't want you photo floating around Internet.

Not embedding it because the Alabama Outrage part.

I took a ballot selfie once, simply because it was illegal in my state at the time. I'm in a lot of family pics, and the DMV gets one shot at me every 8 years.

In theory, in Arizona, you could let the MVD take your picture when you are sixteen, and use that same picture until you are sixty-five.

Good luck with that.

I have had Facebook recommend women that I knew and they had many more pictures of themselves than their kids. I take more pictures of my brother than myself.

I dated a girl that did exactly this:


I have several recent pictures of my brother holding things. I am not sure why I do that instead of just taking pictures of the thing, but I enjoy taking pictures of my brother.

Frankly, the only selfies I take are because I want to capture some scenery, but include myself because my wife vastly prefers pictures with me in them vs dry scenery photos. I don’t think I’ve ever taken more than 5 to get something satisfactory, though.

Since social media is the subtext of the thread, I really don’t participate. Facebook ends up getting me depressed, so I just don’t use it, and that’s the only one I’ve ever signed up for. No twitter, gram, etc. Forums suit me better.

And that’s speaking as someone who literally grew up in Silicon Valley, with two parents in the tech industry, during the formative ten years beginning in the mid-‘90s of the internet.

One might say you're an Ol' Skooler?

I found work with personal computers and software in 1980. When Rupert Murdoch dropped a bundle on MySpace and everyone bolted to Facespook, I just laughed. Never signed up for either.

I get my dopamine hits from Ecomodder and the Simultaneous Sip on Coffee with Scott Adams.

That resonates more than you’d probably know...
