Re: The most annoying new fad in photography

How is the self portrait, one of the standard forms of human artistic expression since the first cave painter airbrushed* around his or her hand as part of the composition, suddenly an annoying new trend? If you dislike the term "selfie", that's another issue. I personally think the English language has worse problems than a harmless slang term for a snapshot self portrait. Stop forming a plural with an apostrophe and you can call it a "selfie" all you want.

I find unboxing videos useful when I am preparing to buy a complicated new bit of kit with lots of crucial small bits.

*Yes, airbrushed. They probably used powdered pigment blown through a straw onto a prepared surface.
