How do you go about shooting a quick photograph if you need to include both of your hands in the frame? One guy had a solution that turned into a classic sequence of photographs.
This happened four years ago after someone on Reddit asked people to share photos of their tattoos. A user named Saend decided to share the body art on his wrists.
“Please don’t ask me how I managed to take this picture…” said Saend.
“I want a picture of you managing to take that picture,” someone replied.
“Here you go my good sir,” said Saend.
This only sparked more mystery.
“Wait a minute… if your camera is in the picture of you taking the picture, HOW DID YOU TAKE THE PICTURE OF YOU TAKING THE PICTURE? I demand answers and/or declare it witchcraft,” someone wrote.
“Challenge accepted!” said Saend.
“Use a mirror too so we can see that camera and end the chain,” was the reply.
“Great idea!” said Saend.
And that is how you take a picture of yourself taking a picture of yourself taking a picture of yourself taking a picture of your hands.
