Drag to set position!

This group (now a decade old!) is moderated, that's why it has only the most creative self-portraits on flickr. The official rules can be found here: www.flickr.com/groups/99079302@N00/rules/ - but in a nutshell, all images must be highly creative portraits of you, taken by you. Show us something new! Above all have fun!

Group Description

Show us your soul in a self-portrait; after all nobody knows yourself better then you do.
Go extreme, get wacky, be original. There is no limit on creativity!

Here are some ideas:

Show us a scene we've never seen before
Something familiar with an unexpected twist
Express a genuine, deep emotion (that is very hard to do in a self portrait, so kudos to those of you who achieve it)
Something you put effort into setting up
Show us something about you, your personality, the person in you or even humanity itself!

Nudes - grey area - gratuitous nudity is frowned upon, but if done right, it's acceptable. Please be appropriate

Be CREATIVE :) and have fun!

Also, we would like to thank our member DiggieVitt for featuring his photo in our icon

Group Rules

There are no rules on creativity, however there are some for self portraits:

Please do not add photos that

Only contain a limb; neck-down shots are okay if they express something creative, but an arm or a foot isn't really a self-portrait - it could be anyone, right?

Are just your shadow, (be your own judge, if done right, shadows can express vast creativity), but for the most part, shadows and reflections are not self portraits.

Nudes - grey area - but if done tastefully, are acceptable. Please be appropriate

And please, pictures of yourself. These are self-portraits. (Male photographers: we know your photos of women are not self-portraits!) No pictures of your cat or your kids or an empty landscape - people posting these will find themselves ejected from the group.

Do not repeatedly delete your photo from the pool and re-submit it just to try and get above other people. It creates extra work for the moderators, and irritates regular visitors to the group to see the same image over and over again. It will also get you banned.

Be CREATIVE :) and have fun!
