A different type of selfies.

Phuket, Thailand

Usually when hearing the word “selfie”, your brain gives an instant image of someone taking a photo of himself on an iPhone. Well, i’m happy to tell you, guys, that self-photography can be brought to a totally different level if using the right technology and your imagination. I was more than excited to try my new Canon EOS 70 D under unusual circumstances. No tripod, no remote control, just the perfectly designed room of Sri Panwa, that has different floor levels in the bedroom; Doina running to the window and posing in time for the timer to shoot; and of course, the breathtaking view of the Andaman Sea from my villa.

Now I want to hear about YOUR experience! Have you ever tried self-photography? What do you think about my little experiment?

    I used to take self-photographies with my Nikon long time ago. I had this strange feeling that I couln’t show a natural smile if someone stood behind the camera. It was a funny thing to do but I’m glad that now I have more confidence in myself and I don’t have to do that anymore

    but what I just saw is crap. Sorry, Doina, an expensive camera doesn’t make one a photographer 😉

  • amazing!

  • So beautiful! <3


  • Doina Ciobanu

    I think you misunderstood me. I never claimed to be a photographer, and that is not what this post is about 🙂

    This is a fashion blog, with this post centred around photography but she never claimed to be a photographer. Also these pictures are very good and in-fact better than ones on the link which is more photoshop than actual photography -___- Another jealous girl I guess, sad.

  • Beautiful photos!

  • Laura

    Doina,ești superba!Bravo pentru aceste poze si felicitari pentru toate editorialele in care ai apărut❤️

  • Amazing photos! Yes, I’ve tried it since my boyfriend takes photos like I am playing football. And believe me, I had better photos like this than made by somebody else. I have a Fujifilm, dreaming of a Canon.


  • wow! these photos are so beautiful!


  • Beautiful photos!

    Last year I spent my winter vacation in Switzerland. Alone. So I decided that to keep great memories, I had to take selfies in front of the landscape. It was a funny experience and because of that i met some great people.

  • Hi! i love your style. you always exude freshness and youthful glow in you that’s very classy and all modern at the same time. truly, golden diamond epitomizes you. keep up the good work and stay gorgeous 🙂

  • I’ve done seflies before they were called that, but to actually take the effort to make a good picture myself, like to say, use a professional camera with a tripod, I have never done that.
