Hi,
Let's say I come across a famous actor and want to take a photo (selfie) of us. So I walk up to him and take a photo with him. Is the part in bold idiomatic if I am the person who takes the photo? Can I say "with him" instead of "of us"?

    Both ways are correct. I took a selfie with ACTOR. I took a selfie of us. Who? ACTOR and me. I took a photo with ACTOR.

    Right then you drop the word selfie and as you said. I took a photo (picture) of so and so with me.

    NEW QUESTION

    I was wondering about the best way to ask someone famous, let's say a famous actor, the "permission" to take a selfie with them.

    I thought something like "Can I take a selfie with you, please?" would do, though not totally sure about it...
