First Selfie

I thought this was interesting. First selfie was taken in 1839. Probably wouldn't have posted it except for the page that I saw it on had a debate about whether it was a selfie or not. So what do you think, is this a selfie? or does a selfie have some other restrictions that set it apart from pictures that people take of themselves?

Yappi is like Charlie from Charlie's Angels. He is heard but not seen.

LOL. It's tough to post my first selfie when I've never taken one.

Pretty much except without the three little girls that went to the police academy.

Wouldn't a camera from 1839 require a really long exposure? To the point he could open the shutter, walk to his position, without the glass plate really collecting much of the image, stand for a few minutes precisely, and then walk back to stop it. The whole time barely imprinting his visage walking to and from the camera (preferably to the side to minimize even further)?

Based on that idea, the selfie wouldn't really be that difficult to do and I could assume someone tickering with a camera might simply test its effectiveness. Glass plates were regularly re-used as well after a bad exposure, so wasting the picture might not have been a concern. If it was or wasn't, is probably up to the honesty of the person saying it is.
