Not Ready For Your Close-Up

I recognize, of course, that body shaming is completely unacceptable - but I do have to say that close-up selfies are really starting to get on my nerves.

We’ve all seen them. Flip to Facebook and cringe as you see your friends and colleagues post incredibly unflattering photos taken with the camera about three inches away. Other than your dermatologist, there is no one who wants to examine your pores and nose hairs. Here’s a suggestion: get a selfie stick. Or perhaps you could actually ask another person to take your picture for you, just like back in the old days. Remember?

Please be kinder to yourself to your audience and stop these abominations - the camera is just not that kind.
