    Default Hold your camera out and take a picture.

    What do you call a picture like my avatar and the method with which it was taken?

    I held the camera out with one hand, held my target, and took a picture of both of us. I've only heard one person claim there was a name for this, but it might be a Los Angeles slang name for it.

    I don't kn ow if it's a widely-used term or not, but this site calls it "sel-ca," for "self-camera(ing)." I don't remember which message board I was on when I ran across this page:

    Good question. I have like 300 pictures of myself and they are all taken like that. I don't know if this suggests that I'm full of myself or that I don't go to parties enough.

    Sel-ca. If it's done in a way to make yourself look beautiful, or angled in some way, or if copious amounts of photos are taken, it's called camwhoring xD..

    You are talking about the one where you take a picture of yourself and someone else while holding them, right? I wouldn't call it the usual cam-whoring type. I've seen them before, but I only know a couple people that do them with any regularity (like my cousin), while I've only taken three of these before.

    Rajah: Thanks!


    For those that missed it: The young man in the picture is my nephew.

    The terms that I've heard the most (and use) is either "self portrait" or "self-shot/self-pic." I suppose that "myspace pictures" work as well...but gah, I hate myspace with a passion!...so therefore I would not use that term.
