When emo chicks take pictures of them selves by holding their cameras high and to the side looking down at them. Conventions include fake tears, messages/drawings on hands, leaning against walls/mirrors, looking generally sad/cute depending on who the it is. This can also be achieved through the use of a reflection in a mirror, and pictures can be taken with digital cameras, camera phones, or if your particularly "hardXcore", an SLR cam too.
Emo A: Hey, do you want me to take a picture of you?
Emo B: No it's okay, I'll take it myself, from the emo angle.
Emo A: Cool should I draw a little heart on your face?
