Janette the Tripod Owner

The day has arrived! I finally got a tripod and remote, guys! Am I excited???? YES SIR! Are you???? Probably not! But that's okay too. Anyway. Here's me taking my toys for a spin.. It was incredibly hard to determine where I would stand and how to focus on that area. I had to use a standing lamp to mark my place. Kind of tedious if you ask me. Also it was super awkward to look natural but aim at the camera with the remote (see below)...But it's better than not having a tripod and remote.... So I'm a happy camper.... I can't wait to try it outside!

Any tips on how to master this whole self-portrait photography would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance.






P.S. You see that third picture? The one where I'm pulling my hair??? Yeah...So... I don't remember doing that. Crazy much??

  2. HELLO GORGEOUS!

    Does your camera not have a timer? That's what we do. Just set the timer to take like 10 pictures and then run around in front of it. Hopefully one or 2 will be worth saving. I don't have a remote but I can see how that would be hard to learn how to hold it and conceal it. Step on it with your toe! Hahaha I'm just loving that first picture so much! So dreamy! Is it in front of a window?

  12. I have a confession. I own a Tripod and I've never used it. I want to get a remote though and then try it out. You've inspired me Janette. I shall try.
