Taking Pix of yourself for here on BB - just some suggestions...

Hey folks....over the past 4 years here on BB, i've seen lots of gallery shots, profile shots, progress photos and thumnail photo. IMO, many, many of them are really awesome and are a tribute to how well people do on this site to improve their bodies. But here's the thing - when taking photos, try a few of these tips to improve their resolution so that others can appreciate your progress and achievements: 1. It's best to have someone else take your photo. The resolution and focus is ALWAYS ten times better. 2. Mirror shots are almost always OUT OF FOCUS because the camera focuses on the hard glass for focal range, not the image of you in it. 3. Bathroom shots are "tacky". If you must, at least clean off the counter and close the lid on the toilet. 4. Flip your "sideways" photos....we can't "stand on our sides" to see your photos. 5. To get a good self-portrait from you cellphone, you have to almost put yourself in a 'half nelson' position. This not only "hides' what you are trying to photograph, but sacrifices a good shot. See #1 above. 6. If you have one, use a digital camera instead of your cellphone. They work better.  7.  If you must use a mirror (ugh!) to take your photo, don't use a flash - it will wash out the entire shot.  Some simple tips....give 'em a try. Good luck all...keep up the great work.
