Read the instructions below to help me reach my goal of 50 or more photos to add to my Tumblr page, which demonstrates how instructions aid in the selfie taking process. 


To participate, please do the following:
  • Choose a set of instructions or tips from the list below
  • Take a selfie
  • Submit the photo to myfirstselfie@gmail.com,
  • Tell us which set of directions/tips you selected (A, B, C, or D)
  • In a few words, tell us what the photo says about you. Include a hashtag (#) that describes your selfie.
  • Be creative, have fun, and be you!

Why am I doing this project?

" ...Creating and sharing a selfie or a stream of selfies is a form of self-reflection and self-creation.”
– Jill Walker Rettburg

 I want to build upon the Tumblr page I have created, in order to demonstrate how instructions are a tool in the selfie taking process. The intent of the project is to intervene in the selfie taking process, specifically geared towards people that are not used to or familiar with the selfie taking process. But I will accept any photo, that has used a set of directions above to create a selfie. The directions provided above host a variety of tools and tips for selfie taking. 


Share this project with your friends, family, and co-workers!
