I don't take selfies as I prefer to be behind the lens. But like all photography the composition and lighting are more important than the megapixels.
Lol!for social media, sure. for a 30x40 canvas over the mantle? not so much.
OT: the toaster, the car, the crayon, the wife.In the last 1 year I've taken 2 sets of selfies - both when I cut my hair and wanted to be funny for the wife. Other than that, out of the 15k photos I take a year, I'm on the other end of the lens (the rear lens that is).
I don't understand selfies, but the again, if I was a pretty person, maybe I would. I don't need to be reminded how ugly I am. I avoid the mirror every morning if at all possible.
