You may already know about the iPhone camera tip I want to talk about today, because I am usually a few years behind the average user of technology. But, when you experience something amazing, you just can't help but to share your excitement with others just in case it may be new news to them benefitting them in some way. So, here I share...
Did you know that you can use your headphones that have inline volume controls on the cable to take a photo with your iPhone camera?
I am hoping one of you is saying, "Wait, WHAT?!" so I can now say, "I know, RIGHT?! Crazy good stuff!"
Or, you might be saying, "they sell remote control buttons for your iPhone's camera." But, what I like is that I don't have to buy anything to make this tip work for me. More than likely, you already received a headphone with your phone. It's something you already have in your possession...so, FREE! Who doesn't love FREE?
We'll return to this blog post in just a moment, but first this commercial break...
Speaking of FREE, have you gotten FOREVER®'s FREE 2GB STORAGE ACCOUNT yet? Have you downloaded FOREVER®'s FREE APP? Did I mention it's FREE? And, you get a $10 coupon to use for a future purchase if you wish! Seriously, FOREVER® is awesome!
And, now back to your previously scheduled blog post...
Seriously, I am a really bad selfie taker. I always feel like a T-Rex dinosaur. I can never get the camera far enough away from me and/or the group I am with to not only get the right angle but to also keep my finger steady on the main button to snap the photo.
Yes, you can also take a photo by clicking on the up or down volume button on the side of your iPhone, but again, my T-Rex arms and hands can't seem to grasp the camera with dexterity to click on those buttons without dropping the phone or capturing a blur of my image. Even pressing the main camera button causes me to put the photo in action mode sometimes with my unsteady extremities.
But, now that I know about this little trick, my selfies are steady! You can hold the phone, place it in a tripod, use a pop up suction holder, or simply prop the phone up against something like I have done in the photos below to take steady photos using attached headphones with the inline volume controls on the cable! To blow your mind even more (it did mine), you can use a bluetooth headphone's volume controls.
So, that's my photo fun tip of the day! (You're going to go grab your headphones and give a selfie a try, aren't you? I hope so! Have fun!)
Do you have an iPhone photo tip? Please share! And, be on the lookout in this series for a few more!
Here's to Steady Selfies! Enjoy!
