I’m gonna show you guys how you can shoot photos of yourself alone .But one of the reasons that I bought my first camera was because I wanted to get better photos of myself to post on social media .you quickly realized that when you’re the one with the camera you actually end up taking photos of other people way more than you end up getting good photos of yourself .so along the way I figured out a way that works for me to take more photos of me. hopefully this way is helpful for you but there are a couple other ways that I’ll try to explain as I go .
The way that I’ve found easiest to take photos of yourself alone work with most modern cameras and that’s to connect your camera to an app in your cell phone. like I said as long as you’ve got a fairly modern camera most of these companies are now making some kind of an app that will connect to your camera and allow you to monitor what you’re seeing and take the photo from your phone. that being said most of the apps that I’ve used to try and do this are not exactly user-friendly. there might be a little bit of fighting to get it connected you might lose some functionality that you normally have when you’re taking photos.it’s all a bit of a game of give and take .
what are the things you need to take pictures of yourself alone ?
here’s what you need to take pictures of yourself alone . now first things first.we’re gonna need a tripod and that should be pretty obvious because if you’re not holding the camera.slap the camera on the tripod and we’re ready to go .so first and foremost I like to just set up my shot and make sure that I like it .
so in the Sony cameras we’re gonna go into the menu. Go up to the top go over to the little world thing and go control with smart phone .turn that on and hit connection .but there will be some kind of a Wi-Fi password or QR code that you can scan or you can use the NFC I believe it’s called and scan that .there will be a bunch of different ways that you can connect .so as you can see mirroring displays .so now you’re connected and you’re gonna keep an eye on your phone and you’re gonna go stand in front .so the first round is generally just checking to make sure that the composition and everything is okay .Adjust the iso and aperture too.Then go hang out back in front again.Then shoot photos of yourself .For visit home
