Is it a new style? A new direction in art? First I was making jokes upon it (http://wheepingguitar.deviantart.com/art/STOP-photographing-yourself-68943729), and ok, i'm still laughing at people at partys taking pictures of themselves in that horrible way.
but obviously there's a certain trend of self photography. a more intimate one. not intimate like "hey look at my boobs", no.
the classic situation goes like this:
girl, about 18, presses self timer, runs in front of the cam, taking a sad or another pose, but always in an emotional way.
often the photo shows only parts of the body, mostly legs.
impossible to imitate for me
and you know
