Some advices..

I don’t have a lot of friends, and everyone is getting these amazing pictures taken of them. I like how they capture the moments.

It’s weird asking random people take pictures me, so how? If I don’t have many friends.

  • Put your camera on a tripod, set the ten second timer and run into position.  That's what I do.

    @chirchir   Your question reminds me that over the years I’ve been with people who had no qualms about asking strangers nearby if they would take a picture of us. I’ve even seen this done in the movies. As a single person, alone, I wouldn’t chance it. So, I agree with the suggestion above to put the camera on a tripod, set the timer for 10 seconds as you put yourself into position for the selfie. I also set the camera for multiple shots at different light settings and pick the one that looks the best.  On my digital cameras, it's called bracketing and auto-bracketing.   :)   Summer

  • I would have commented earlier but I couldn't stop laughing at Denis's response. Anyway I can't think of anything to add to what's been said.

    Many thanks .

    Now I know what to do.

  • I also recommend Rembrandt Lighting.  It takes a little while to set up and position yourself correctly but this lighting makes for excellent prints to paint from.  There are some youtube videos showing simple steps for this.
