I either use the timer on my camera or my phone (I love my phone for having and amazing camera), or my boyfriend if I’m with him, which are usually the ones I took around college.

My boyfriend likes to take pictures of me, but we rarely have time to do it together. So I’ve recently taught myself to do it-definitely do-able, but it is much easier to have someone else do it for you. But at least I find this much easier to fit into my schedule, plus I don’t feel as self-conscious when I am absolutely the only one seeing the photos. I’ve been using a pretty shitty camera for my latest blog posts, but just ordered a T3i, so I’m looking forward to playing around with that!

I have no one to take them and I couldn’t afford a tripod until I found the gorilla tripod. It is really cheap. It is very small and compact and you can wrap it around tree branches or poles. It is my new best friend. sometimes when people see me taking photos of myself they offer to take the picture for me but I realized that most people suck at taking photos so I prefer to do it myself with the tripod and 10 second self timer. I have a point and shoot camera but they make gorilla tripods for SLRs too.

buy a remote if you are going to take your own photos.it saves loads of time.and they aren’t that expensive.i don’t need a tripod right away but i will buy one in a couple of years.

I usually get my roommate or boyfriend to do it. I really need to get a tripod though because I’m really picky with my photos!!

boyfriend does, but he doesn’t take the best angles :( imo its best you know how to take the photos yourself and then you can easily teach people who to take photos of you!

I usually take my own pictures using a tripod and a timer. This took a lot of practice and I’m still learning how to do it to get the best results. Sometimes my boyfriend will take pictures for me, usually when we’re out and about. He’s a pretty good photographer, but I usually have a clear idea in my mind what I want my pictures to look like, so it’s easier if I do it myself. I also find that I’m less self-conscious when it’s just me and my tripod. I always worry that I look like a moron when I’m posing away in front of somebody else!

Recently started blogging so I find it more comfortable for me just to take myself. My timer has become my best friend haha. Maybe when I am more comfortable with posing in front of a camera I MIGHT let my boyfriend help.

Time to invest in a tripod!
