How To Take Photos By Yourself
Tips and tricks on how to take photos by yourself using tripod.
1. LOCATION SCOUTING
Make sure you pick a location with decent lighting. like the one shown below.
Lucky for me I found the perfect spot which was right under this
gorgeous 'natural light diffuser' at a doorstep ! Just make sure people won't mess up your shots by walking up and down.
2. THE SETUP
Now this will vary with everyone. However, the standard setup should involve some sort of backdrop, it can be a wall, a natural background, a weird piece of fabric, a garbage can, whatever you want! As long as the camera can focus on you... and just you honey bun.
3. THE EQUIPMENT
If you go with the backdrop option, this is the equipment I use:
STAND + WEIGHTS
4. THE APP
This is basically all you need once you set up your camera (it has to have Built-In Wi-fi). There are several Youtube tutorials on how to use the app. Here is one. :)
5. YOU'RE ALL SET!
Now just hide the camera in a good spot and use a timer. If you are not a fan of this method, you should use a regular camera remote, that always works too.
