Taking Pictures of Yourself
For me, taking pictures of myself is such a chore! While I LOVE taking pictures, I HATE taking pictures of me! Or maybe it’s just pictures of me in general! Same difference, really! But, if you’re in direct sales, selling clothes especially, it’s always a good idea to have pictures of yourself in the clothing you’re trying to sell! Clothes look so much different on a person compared to a hanger! All of our bodies are different, so no comparisons, OKAY?
Three Different Options
I want to share three different options for you to try. Yes, it is still a chore, but at least it’s an easy one to do! So get dressed, get a tripod and camera set up, and start taking pictures. And remember, YOU are the only one who will see these until you share them! So be yourself, and have fun!
I do mine this way for two reasons. The first one, I have to be in the mood to get pictures taken. I have to feel like getting dressed and doing my hair and make up. Not to mention gathering up different outfits and changing clothes. Some days, I’m just too lazy or tired or whatever to put any effort in to it. That’s just the way I am! The second reason has to do with the first one, to a certain extent. It is also because there isn’t always someone around to take the pictures for me.
This first option is probably the easiest to do. I set a tripod up with my iPad on, set it to video, and start moving around. Move around, or stand still for a few seconds, then change poses and do it again. Put some music on and dance (you know, dance like no ones watching)! Do what you need to do to feel good. Then replay the video and take screenshots of any….or all…..the poses you like! Maybe you’ll end up with 100 pictures you like, or maybe just 2. It doesn’t matter, because there’s always tomorrow.
If you want to do this and change outfits, you can let the video going or stop it and start back up again. Remember, only you are seeing this.
I have 2 different Bluetooth remotes that i use for my iPad. There are so many different ones on the market that you can buy, that work with iPad’s or phones. Just be sure that it is compatible with your device. These are the 2 I have, along with the links on Amazon, so you can check them out.
Set up your tripod with whatever you are taking pictures with, strike a pose, and click away. Having music on is a good thing to do with this, too. Pictures can be snapped while you’re moving around, or stand still and snap the picture. Either way works. Take a bunch, so you’ll be sure to find some you like!
This last option requires purchasing an Echo Look from Amazon. What I like about this option, is the ability to blur the backgrounds in the image. Once you have it set up, all you have to do is tell it to take your picture, and it does. Save it if you like it, or delete it. It is a lot of fun to play around with! Even if I do feel weird talking to myself…..out loud!
Play around with any of these options. Find what works for you, and have fun doing it!
