best thing to do is get someone else to take them, preferably outside with lots of natural light. but in a pinch i balance my camera on a random surface with the self-timer lolposted almost 4 years ago
I was wondering the same since my pics sometimes look kind of blurry and the light isn’t good as wellposted almost 4 years ago
I get someone else to take it, in natural light as marisa03 said. I take my camera with my everywhere so I just get friends/family to take a photo while I’m out :)
Either that or I place my camera on a high surface and make sure there’s lots of light so that the photo doesn’t turn out too dark or blurry.posted almost 4 years ago
I balance mine on random objects if i’m in the house, but if i’m out and about, i just ask people to take shots of me, nobody has objected so far!posted almost 4 years ago
A tripod works, but I find it pretty inconvenient to lug around all the time.
Find some places with high up, flat surfaces, and self-timer it with a flash or excellent natural lighting. Take lots of photos in case some of them don’t work or are blurry.
Also, ask coworkers, friends or family to take them! It seems awkward to do, but it’s not at all. Documentation of style may inspire others.
For me, there’s a monastery up near my school that has perfectly set benches that I just put my camera on.
Scout around your town and see if there’s somewhere that gets good light and has these kinds of surfaces if it’s awkward asking somebody to take your photos.
Tripods are also great, especially if you take them in your backyard or inside your house. You can adjust the settings, height, etc.
If you are really into photography, consider investing in a hand held remote for your camera, that way you control when your camera takes the photo. They cost around $40 at some electronic stores…maybe check that out?

Thanks…I was wondering that too… I hope the pictures are going to be much better… Love u all..xo..xo..posted almost 4 years ago
If you are by yourself and you want to use the self timer, its best to use a plain background, not a background that has depth because that’s what is making you blurry when it takes the photo. The solution: You can either have someone take your photos (which for me is impossible) or place an object where you are going to stand and then it will focus on that OR put up a blanket or cloth as your background and/or on a plain wall this will help the focusing problemsposted almost 4 years ago
