Self portraits are a wonderful way to give viewers a sense of a photographer's taste and personality. And contrary to popular belief, they do not have to be as cliché as using the reflection of your bathroom mirror. There are plenty of different creative approaches one can take.
If you're ready to show off your photography chops, check out this week's Phone Snap Self Portrait Challenge. Post your submission to the corkboard by Monday, January 16th at 11:59 pm PST for a chance to win a Portable USB Power Supply. To help stir up you some ideas for your entry, here are 20 self portraits captured by various Flickr users—taken with cell phones only, of course!
