    Let's clear the air before we dive headfirst (one arm extended above our beautiful visages) into the art of the selfie: There is no shame in taking a picture of yourself. Go for it; find the best mirror, perfect your duck pout, and snap that pic. Of course, achieving the perfect selfie is truly an art.
