We’ve all heard of the “selfie” but have you heard of the new type of photo littering news feeds: the Couplie? I have been on the trend-setting cutting edge, and did not even know it! I don’t take ‘selfies’ of just me, but take ‘couplies’ all the time.
The Couplie is a photo taken in the style of a selfie but features two people, either a couple or a pair of friends. I like those much better, getting a closeup of you and a friend together! Unless the friend is so smokin’ hot, they make you look bad. Just kidding….
Selfies were the photo trend of 2013 and the term was crowned word of the year by Oxford Dictionaries. I think the ‘couplie’ should be added this year too.
Are you a ‘selfie’ or ‘couplie’ kind of photographer?
