Maybe you amazing ladies can answer this one seeing as you all have amazing pictures!

How do you take a decent full length picture of yourself?

I either get top or bottom never both!!

it’s basically trial and improval
you need:
self timer on your camera/or a friend/relative
decent lighting – outdoors is often nice
uncluttered backdrop is always a plus

as for getting yourself all in, you need to basically try and try, and then adjust each time until you finally get it right, and then next time, you just need to remember where the camera was if you get me!
hope I helped!

haha yeah DIY: put your camera on a stack of objects (books, boxes). I wouldn’t suggest it though- your camera might fall!
:P

it’s def. worth it to spend the extra money on a good/decent tripod!

Wal-Mart sells then for 30 to 45 dollars. Works great for me.

self timers are very helpful! i also have a tripod so i dont just put it over anything. An outfit usually takes many shots before i get the picture i want to post.

Try and try. You can actually get posing ideas from the poses of the other girls here. ;-)

DIY tripod for an unsteady camera – a stool and a shirt that is bunched up for the camera to rest on

good photos require good lighting and a middle camera angle. try to position the camera like 8 feet away from you at slightly above your waist height. sunlight always works best for free lighting.

If you don’t have a tripod, find a chair or a table or some sort of stand where you can set your camera and take the photo using the self-timer.
