While not all my shots are taken the same way I wanted to share with you my little tutorial on how to take good photos of yourself when traveling solo, with or without a tripod. Usually, solo travelers rarely show up in their own photos unless they have an Instagram husband. While I do have a husband, he rarely travels with me and when he does, he prefers to take his on photos than photos of me. Since I prefer to be in my own photos, especially after I decided to How to Take Good Photos of Yourself? Lots of patience and not worrying about looking silly. If I take a great shot of something anyone else can have the same one. Does this make sense? In my case, photos taken by other people turn out to be bad, with either my head or legs chopped off. Unless you explain to a person what exactly do you want and tell them to hold the camera in an exact position, your photo will probably be useless. My Tip: Find people with a tripod, they usually know how to take a decent photo. Hold the camera the way you want it and show them a point of interest.

Option 4: Use a Long Arm Selfie for Close-Up Shots Taken with Wide-Angle Lens If you simply refuse to be that selfie stick person like myself , just stretch your arm out as far as you can, strike a pose and snap a selfie. This technique works perfectly if you need a close-up shot like this one with a kangaroo, or if you use your a wide angle lens on your camera. Taking a good picture is only 40% of a successful photo. Learning how to edit your photos properly will make you a successful photographer. Do you use any of my techniques? Thank you for answering my Twitter question about how you took those awesome photos. You looks really awesome. I bet you are even awesomer in person. I mostly took photos with my Canon 7D.

Oh man, I made the mistake of trying to set my camera in a tripod over a rock in NY to take a group picture with my friends and the camera fell on the floor and the back glass got shattered.
