Some people feel very worried to go solo traveling because of having no friends in taking pictures. Almost all people always ask you or other people about who takes your photo because it is very nice picture. Actually, we can do it by ourselves. Solo traveling does not have any obstacles to take nice pictures anymore.
How can this be so? Yes because you can bring your kind friend to take your picture. It is your tripod. Your tripod will be your faithful friend to accompany and help you to have sweet memories although you are a solo traveler. So, you should read these tips on how to take good pictures of yourself.
I will not give you suggestions on how to ask people that you meet to help you take a picture. I don’t say that the people can’t use your camera well or they are not expert enough in taking pictures or photos. Not, exactly. But, there are some limited conditions when you ask for help from others to take your picture, moreover if you don’t know the people. The real problem that I get when I asked help from person that I met when I had my first solo traveling was that the person could not take the images that I wanted. I had explained to him that I want to have the image showing me and the large open sky. Unfortunately, my image became like the frame was only me. And that was very bad. Sorry. So, if you want to have a solo traveling adventure, I suggest you bring your friends – your tripods, please.
My suggestion and I think it is the best suggestion based on my experience is using your tripod. The reason we rely on our tripods is because by using a tripod we can take the image that we want. No matter if you have to spend much time to take a picture of yourself. The best result is the result you wanted. I suggest you bring some tripods, not only one. You can bring at least two tripods, gorilla pods, and a mini tripod. The tripods will be useful for your conditions that you want. And I think tripods are cheaper than taking more people.
Then, how to take good pictures of yourself using tripods? It is not easy but it is not hard. Just ensure that you relax and not be worried about doing that. Your patience will be very important. Using tripods will help you to take pictures with long exposure. Don’t worry if you are steady.
When you use your tripod and your camera to take your photos, you have two options to ‘click’ the switch of camera. First, you can use the remote controller and the second just set the timer. However, taking your selfie photo will be better by choosing a remote controller. It will make it easier managing the time. The timer is good also, but it will be troublesome because you must prepare yourself by running or in a hurry for setting your position for the image.
