If you have a video camera, and either a friend or a tripod, set it up to record yourself passing by from different directions, including approaching and moving away. Do several passes so you're not "posing," but in your usual riding position.

If you have a trainer, or can borrow one, that's also helpful for checking bit fit and ergonomics. After about 15-30 minutes you won't be thinking about the camera and any poor posture, etc., will become apparent after 15 minutes or so. Also good for checking leg extension, pedaling style, etc.

I've found that very helpful for correcting some flaws in my bike fit and posture.

Because of old and more recent injuries (neck, back and shoulder) I was tending to hunch up my shoulders, tip my head to one side while riding, etc. Getting back into physical therapy for a couple of months helped as well.
