Hi Everyone,

My name is Samantha and I am new both here and to photography. It's always been a bit of a hobby for me and now I would like to finally brush up on actual technique. Well, here is a photo I took of myself while I was trying to take a self portrait for the first time. Any suggestions on how I can improve???

Thanks!!

Samantha

*edit* So as it turns out I don't know how to include a photo in a post on this forum..... I'm not sure why it didn't work. Any how, the photo i'm talking about my avatar photo.

Use a slightly smaller aperture next time and both your eyes will be in focus.

The nose seems a bit large in comparison with the the rest of the face. I would suggest that you move the camera farther away, and use a longer focal length, to alleviate that distortion of the nose's size.
