I want to do some portraits, yet the only willing model I have is myself. I really have low self-image (I have some issues in that arena of my life, not to get too personal), and I feel very ugly and narcissistic whenever I get in front of the camera. Is this normal? Some people on here post a lot of self-portraits. This seems like a bit much for me to do for myself, cause even if the composition is good, I hate the photo cause I think the model is ugly. I posted my one self-portrait, even though I hated it. My strong feelings almost made me not post it. Also, does the tone of the self-portrait make it any more or less narcissistic if indeed it is? Most of the time I find my ideas to be somewhat dark and twisted. But I want to make sure that if people know I'm photographing myself, it won't change their opinion of the photo, good or bad. Anyway, if anyone could give me some help I'd appreciate it. Also if some of you people who do post self-portraits could tell me how I could learn to become okay with doing so myself, I'd appreciate that alos.
