3 Ways Improve Your Smartphone Photography
A tripod or “selfie stick” can help you capture professional-quality images when you’re flying solo in the field or on the water
Photo or it didn’t happen! The way to make your digital contribution as high-quality as possible is with a portable, lightweight selfie stick or tripod to eliminate unwanted motion and give your first-person photography the right perspective. Here are a few highly rated options to choose from.
The simplest and most unobtrusive smartphone mount is just a telescoping rod with a phone holder at one end: aka the selfie stick. They’re lightweight, sleek, and easily stashed in a pack, bag, or pocket. Look for one-piece construction with a universal mount that will fit any smartphone and case.
If you want a little more function out of a selfie stick, consider one that also has extendable legs at the base. They can be folded up for use as a standard selfie stick or extended to create a stable platform for remote photography.
A heavy-duty selfie stick with a tripod base and Bluetooth remote control offers the ultimate in versatility. The platform is more stable, is just as extendable as a selfie stick, and houses a wireless shutter release to provide exacting photography or video from any distance. No more fiddling with timed releases!
