Selfie king—the only appropriate description—Christian Bucad is quite creative capturing himself digitally. He is no Snapchat snapper. His poses are thoughtful, well-composed, and often demand good photographic know-how. Doesn’t hurt that he is a good-looking-enough guy.
He shot today’s selection to celebrate his Twitter account reaching 10,000 tweets. Hence, the self-title. “It goes to show how nearly two years of tweeting makes you less and less sociable. Hooray for me”, he says. He used Nikon D3 and 70-200mm f/2.8 lens to capture the selfie, on Jan. 12, 2011. Vitals: f/4.5, ISO 400, 1/250 sec, 70mm. He adds: “Strobist—SB-600 @ 1/8 power fired from reflective umbrella, camera right, triggered by SU-800”.
Funny thing. Four years later, I can’t find Christan’s Twitter account, but he is still active on Flickr, which he joined in January 2006. The selfie king lives in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
