I hear ya, I'm not vain and I certainly don't think I'm hot stuff but I love self portraits because you get to create and watch a transformation unfold. I'll be sure to check out you're other stuff. Saw you use a canon ti1. I used one of these until recently when I just upgraded to the t3i. So worth it!!!
I mostly use the T1i but we also have a 5D mark II , but I like to use the flash to bring out sparks in my eyes, and the 5D doesn't have a flash, so I would have to use the external one, and that's just not so good for my kind of pictures
