Gang, this is an honest plea for help/advice/something.
I photograph like a retarded vampire chipmunk. I got some lovely tips today on photographing better from a friend, but this doesn't do much good when it's only me and a cheap camera that I can't even plug into my damn machine. ("Okay...okay...figure out the time delay...set it...run around the front...crap, I remember that it was chin up and three quarter view of the face but look towards the camera and--shit--was it three quarter view of the hips and torso, or straight on, or--*CLICK*--DAMNIT!")
I am at a point in my life and self-esteem where a good photo of me might be NICE. I mean, I'm lookin' pretty damn good at the moment, and at the very least, I would like to immortalize it for posterity, since frankly, I suspect this is the best I've ever looked in my entire life.
Yes, it's vanity. I am okay with that.
Any advice on how the heck to get some good shots? I mean, I don't want to go blow scads of money being professionally photographed, which really would be vanity, and completely unjustifiable, but it would be nice to have SOMETHING.
