Many photography enthusiasts (myself included) first found our way to behind the camera as a simple act of trying to get out of being photographed and as a result discovered the pleasure of capturing images.  Despite this, sooner or later it is good to have a picture of our selves, be it for a website etc. Given our sensitivity to having our picture taken, who better to get the picture than ourselves?  Getting a self portrait does present a few problems.  Fortunately there are a few websites  that provide advice on photography, of those provides a nice page of suggestions on how to capture a good sharp self portrait.
