"RE: Face Detection for Self-Portrait"

I use a different method on older cameras without face detection.
1. Set the camera focus to closest subject priority
2. Set the desired aperture; 5.6 is a good place to start.
3. Turn the camera toward yourself. Align camera, self, and background - get the background where you want it.
4. Turn the camera around its axis while looking backward through the lens. If you want to have yourself on the right side of the photo then turn the camera until you cannot see backward through the eyepiece with your left eye. Turn the camera back slightly until you can see through the lens with both eyes. Use the same logic for the up/down alignment.
5. Use autofocus.
6. Take picture.
