Selfie Control – Hot Selfie Pictures

Who doesn’t love hot selfie pictures? OK so there are literally billions of the little blighters out there clogging up your cyber tubes but come on, the good ones can be sexy, beautiful or inspiring.

Robert Cornelius SelfieIt was Robert Cornelius, the 19th Century pioneer of American photography who lays claim to shooting the very first selfie in 1839. To give you a clue 1839 is usually considered to be the date of the invention of photography by William Henry Fox Talbot.  So not only is Cornelius’s selfie one of the first selfies it is also one of the first photographs of a person.

Cornelius would have had to use a really long exposure time – long enough for him to open the shutter, run into shot for a minute or more, and then scamper back to close the shutter. The result is a gloriously haunting and delicate image that predates and predicts in equal measure the future of the selfie in the 21st Century.

Since Kodak, almost everyone has had their photo taken at least once. Passport offices around the world have become mad collectors of selfies.

Today, hot selfie pictures are best defined as photographic self-portraits created by pointing a camera held by the subject at arms length. Everyone is taking selfies – selfles in the bathroom mirror, selfies with cleavage showing, head back, sultry smile and devilish eyes.


Girls taking hot selfie pictures

In our humble opinion it is simply that Australian women are sexier then any other women and so naturally they have more to offer their friends and fans then anyone else.

It would be a waste not to share.

If we see a woman taking a selfie the first reaction is, ‘She’s hot’. Having played the role of artistic muse for centuries finally women can objectify themselves on their own terms – it’s empowerment surely?

(I already feel that I am walking through a minefield here… especially as it’s a Friday and I’ve been following #FriskyFriday pictures on Twitter since just after breakfast.)

Even gentlemen are taking photos of themselves.  Sometimes they might be dapper or self-effacing while other times vanity lets rip and it’s all sunglasses, boutique beers and we dread to say it, naked from the waist up. Only joking guys.

Men are even taking selfies in public, blind to the shame they should be feeling. It’s like the Metamorphosis of Narcissus on steroids.


The Future of the Selfie

Buzz Aldrin Selfie from space – the future of the selfie?

At the end of 2012, Time magazine considered selfie one of the “top 10 buzzwords” of the year. I wonder where they would put hot selfie pictures in the list this year? Countless memes have been generated for them and indeed they are now the most popular type of photograph. But what of the future of the selfie?

Brace yourselves… it’s video selfies next. More and more it is video sharing, embedded video testimonials etc that are going to give people the opportunity to stamp their ‘me, me, me‘ on everything they see.

Third generation selfies will be used as part of an augmented reality. The video trend from the second generation of selfies will evolve in a way that allows us to produce selfies on top of other objects or in other places.

According to eminent futurist Dr. James Canton:

“There will be apps that will help me in real time to become a producer of my own selfie media, and turn my friends into my audience. People will start creating festivals of ‘selfie augmented realities’ and layered experiences. This will become part of a new cultural meme of how people use selfies.”

All this is coming down the track in about three to five years

The Selfie is an Aussie

By 2013, the word “selfie” had become commonplace enough to be monitored for inclusion in the online version of the Oxford English Dictionary.

In November 2013, the word “selfie” was announced as being the “word of the year” by the Oxford English Dictionary, which gave the word itself an Australian origin.
