Pick one:

1. Food photography

2. Selfies

3. Unboxing videos

From Wikipedia: "A selfie is a type of self-portrait photograph, typically taken with a hand-held digital camera or camera phone...They...are typically taken either with a camera held at arm's length or in a mirror, and typically include either only the photographer or the photographer and as many people as can be in focus."

I usually consider a selfie to be a photo taken live while hand holding the camera, not a timed tripod shot or remote shutter release shot - therefore breaking all the rules of portrait photography at once. And objects in mirror may be bigger than actual size...

As for unboxing videos, anything that gets the old DSLR geezers to use their video is fine by me.
