Scanner vs digital camera

There are few things more fun to modern mobile device users than busting out their smartphones, and having super selfie sessions with their friends, their pets, or just by themselves. According to Google, 93 million selfies are taken every day, in fact.

With so many self-portraits to compete with, yours has to really stand out if you want to get as many new likes and followers as possible. Here are a few tips to help you have a more productive digital camera shoot.

Get a Selfie Stick.

Maybe you’ve seen them around, and maybe you haven’t. A lot of people have been investing in the “selfie stick” — a little rod with a claw at the end that can fit a smartphone or other digital camera for the express purpose of allowing a person to take better selfies from a distance. By having the camera farther away from you, you can fit more of yourself into the frame. Though these aren’t very conducive to those impromptu digital camera shoots, they can be a lot of fun at parties, when you’re definitely going to have a selfie session. If you prefer using a proper camera, consider looking through online digital camera stores for a tripod or other accessories.

Invest in Some Good Photo Editing Apps.

Once you’re done with your digital camera shoots, why not touch your pictures up? There are tons of free, freemium, or paid apps that are pretty powerful. If you don’t want to spend anything, get VSCO. You can easily adjust the brightness, contrast, and more of the products of your latest digital camera shoot, and also add some cool filters. If you’re willing to pay a buck or two to enhance your digital camera shoots’ pictures, get Afterlight, which is much the same as VSCO, but higher quality.

Try Using an App With a Timer.

Instead of just holding the camera or smartphone out at arm’s length (or using a selfie-stick), why not turn the timer on? It might be a pain if you’re trying to have a full blown digital camera shoot, but it allows you to use the better camera if you’re using a smartphone, and allows you to get the rest of your body and not just your face in the frame.

These are just a few of the ways you can make your digital camera shoots more productive, and take much better selfies. What modern human being wouldn’t want that? More.
