What is the selfie and when it appeared?

, seemingly, seize the World new fashion - self-photography. That is selfie. Hobby downright common at youth. And uncles - aunties are more senior too are noticed behind this mass occupation. Moreover, even the persons invested by the power spread on the Internet of with this or that foreshortening from - for lengths of the hand holding the digital device or the mobile phone with a camera.

Physicians are already concerned by the fact that the unlimited number of the people became dependent on a selfie. It is well visible on albums on social networks. The picture when somebody, having leaned out nearly to a belt of a window of the bus, the tram or the train, removes himself became the habitual phenomenon. In any case transport? Young people climb on roofs of high-rise buildings, become on the eaves and press the descent button at the camera! And to them it is absolute on a fig that these actions create threat for the life. The main thing - to find the stunning background behind the back and to post then a “sensational“ photo in the Network.

Reaches in general the absurd moments. Example? Quite recently on the Internet the picture appeared: the young man goes with lifted in the face of the camera on the road with very big traffic and does not see the car rushing on him.

Generally the selfie (from English it is translated as “itself“) appeared long ago. Nearly at the beginning of the invention of the camera. Then it were wooden boxes, decent by the size and weight. They were established on a tripod. The image passed through a lens in a box and “lit“ the dark plate from glass covered with photosensitive chemical. There was a manifestation and fixing of the image further.

The photographer was still forced “to glance“ in a box under a cover, to put a plate, to adjust a lens and, having left a box, to press on it descent of a lock. Further (with the advent of a long rope) the photographer could remove already and himself. However, only standing. Or in a mirror if a support with the camera were behind. In process of improvement of cameras the mechanism which lowered a lock through certain time was constructed. It became already without rope, cameras became more compact and weighed less.

Historians carry the most known selfie on prescription to 1838. Then American Robert Cornelius (who is considered as the first photographer in the USA) removed himself. In Russia the first selfie was taken by the daughter of the tsar Nicholas II Anastasius in 1914. It applied “Kodak Brownie“ invented in 1900 to the photoself-portrait. Certainly, can be found in other countries of a selfie, made even earlier and other models of cameras.

Now discussion into that account when and where on the Internet the selfie for the first time appeared gains steam? Dispute is started by residents of Australia. They consider that the palm belongs to their country. Proofs? In 2002 on one of the Australian websites the user posted the photo with a mark - an apology for bad quality. Like, removed himself in a state of intoxication. I believe, discussion on it will not come to an end.

It is noticed that people, keen selfies, become dependent on the camera or the mobile phone with a chamber. They try to find situations in which it is possible to take a selfie with unexpected effect. At the same time special attention is paid to the appearance. The last is very characteristic of female persons. In it there is nothing bad if not one essential circumstance: these people become irritable on any trifle. Psychologists diagnose for them dysmorphophobia - a disturbing state from - for fear not ready be beautiful to remove themselves.

The selfie becomes already the reason of various incidents. And not only on transport. With chambers juvenile children have mobile phones even in gardens now. Cases when the child, having appeared without supervision of adults, began to take a selfie are already noted, without thinking of the safety at all - on a carriageway, near any working mechanism, standing close to foreign dog who ran to the yard … It became obvious to

that the selfie needs to be “settled“ somehow. In the State Duma V. Zhirinovsky suggested to punish a large penalty of parents whose children the next selfie created problems for themselves and people around. Probably, some rules for a selfie nevertheless will appear.
