I have no Self-ie Control

I don't have self-ie control

With the selfies, a photographer has finally found his place in a photograph. Amit Kalantri

Professional Photographers can make a real kill,because of selfies.

As an amateur photographer,I realized that selfie makes one’s life miserable.

1.Selfies distort your face by 30 % .The truth is you look ugly.people are dejected for this and try to avoid the world.

2.Selfie face distortion making people do nose jobs and plastic surgeons have become busy .Some body even inventing app( commercialization),which is supposed to correct the distortion

3. People becoming obsessed and in the process getting depressed.

4. As a medical professional,I can tell you that regular usage of selfie can give you SELFIE WRIST, an emerging hazard in this digital era.Selfie wrist causes pain,numbness and tingling sensation in the hand.( carpal tunnel syndrome)
Doctor warns-rise in cases of selfie wrist

5.Hundreds and thousands are getting killed while trying to take selfies with India in the lead,followed by Russia.USA and Pakistan.

I conclude..

“The inventor of the mirror poisoned the human heart”.

    Uhmm…true na,people have become more self obsessed and self conscious because of this selfie wave which has currently taken over.
    Once in a while…. would be fine…. but forever posing in front of the mob cam with or without the pout has become a annoyance and irritating. The beauty of the photography was the camera angle seen by the photographer, which no more exists …the world is fast changing…. i must say.

      Forget once a while it is ‘ok’ statement……That means one is from the Middle Age.
      This age. …..it is weird if you don’t use frequently…….breathe selfie more & more.
      The only time one won’t use selfie is when one become sick of ones face..
      Camera angle etc -What You are talking……who is willing to listen ?
      BTW you have full frame or cropped body camera ? Just curious.

            Photography was a subject in the curriculum i learned. ..My submitted album with it’s headlines where one of the top 10 in submitted ones. But it’s a rare craft now a day’s …professional photographers are struggling to stay float. Sad but true .

              Congratulations.I never knew that all these days I am interacting with a professional photographer who stood always top in the subject.Yeah the charm of photography is lost with the advent of selfie. In this context my mention of the quote about the invention of mirror is apt I feel.

                Ayyo…don’t put me in a pedestal…that’s almost a history and i have lost in touch with it now… but yes still if something catches my eye I wish i could click it…
                Yes what you said about the mirror is absolutely perfect. If one was not much self aware I think no one can beat the confidence we feel when we have interactions. But these mirrors showed us who we are and there started the chain of everything else of more beautification.
                Nothing like simplicity i say…that’s the best beautiful reflection of you.

                  It’s ok.
                  knowledge gained will never be forgotten or lost..yes.
                  Agree with you about simplicity.
                  We look more beautiful if our heart and mind are clean together.
                  A doubt…suppose the mirror were not invented,how we all would have lead the life ?
                  May be the artists and painters will be there for rescue.
                  These days Is life possible without mirror (similar to how is life without mobile)?

    I strongli disagree on this one. Yes, you have that statistics, but when it comes to indiividual, and it’s happiness, facts and racionality has so little of importance.

      Hi, Author Anagalicblog Thank you so much for stopping by.It’s a pleasure always to interact with you.Thanks for your perspective.
      If you closely read my post ,no where I mentioned that Selfie robs individual happiness.If one loves Selfie,excellent,none can stop and it’s individual liberty.But the point I am trying to stress is …obsession of selfie & its harmful effects over the period of time,even leading to death in extreme situations.Here in comes my title….lack of self control ….that’s all I wanted to explain.It is generally said any thing in excess is not good for the soul.
      Thanks again for the opportunity you gave me for this thought provoking interaction

        Come on – leading to death overtime. I am sorry but that is yada-yada talk not serious philosophy. Reminds me on my professor who actually said that people from the West eat our children, just because they hate us.

        And it is my pleasure to be a member of your conversation.
