Momma Told Me: You can't live behind that camera!
As a blogger I firmly believe that take the best photos of myself. If I had a dollar for every time Jay and I have gotten into a row over photos for a 'fashion post' photo shoot I'd have that Cannon T5i that's been on my wish list for so long! You seem I've probably taken more photos of myself than those taken of me, by everyone I've known my entire life, combined. I've learned every selfie Smartphone angle, how to strap my DSLR around my neck so I can auto-snap photos of my hands in a step-by-step recipe, and even the exact timer rotation on my point and shoot. They don't teach classes in that, folks- those are Blogger street smarts, and they're skills I think we shouldn't have to acquire.
I used my Solo Stick Pro Gold with my Samsung Galaxy S3 and noticed the same part which secured the cell phone mount adapter had to be securely locked to stabilize the phone, otherwise the weight would un-thread the base and my phone would rotate in use. I also notices, for my specific phone, that the extra wide/long cell phone mount seemed to be positioned so it hit my phone's On/Off buttons if I wasn't paying attention. My phone rebooted 3 times during this photoshoot, and moving the mount's grip away from the buttons threw off the weight balance of the phone at the end of the Solo Stick.
Solo Stick Shutter device, compatible with any ios or Android device. For less than $10 you can turn your phone into a hands free (or Solo Stick compatible) camera with a range of up to 30 feet! Together, these two products rock my socks with a whole new world of photo-journalistic opportunities. I can't wait to share what I capture next! How would you use your Solo Stick first?
What Daughter Says: Getting in front of the lens is easier than ever with a great selfie stick and shutter remote.
