By now you probably know what a selfie is. Your typical self-portrait, usually taken with your phone. Well, let’s rewind back to time to the 1800s. A man by the name of Robert Cornelius, an American pioneer in photography, decided to take a photograph of himself and titled the photo “The first light picture ever taken.1839.” Fast forward to the 1900s and the debut of the portable Kodak Brownie box camera where the photographic self-portraits became a revelation. Now that you know a little history about the first selfie, let’s dive right into five unique ways people are taking selfies these days.
