1. Anchor The Selfie Stick On Your Hip For Crisper, Clearer Selfies
Does your phone feel 10 times heavier at the end of your Selfie Stick? Your wrist cannot hold the stick steady, and you are frustrated by blur shot after blur shot, seemingly unable to capture the nuanced layering of your great hairdo.
Well here’s a nifty tip to relief all of that tension on your wrist: Extend your Selfie Stick to its longest and anchor the handle on your hip on on your belt. This simple trick not only steadies the camera, it ensures that any movement is in sync with your body i.e your body isn’t moving relative to the camera, allowing you to take the clearest selfies.
2. The Right Way To Capture All Of Your Food – And Yourself!
You’re having a meal with your friends, trying to take that mandatory food picture for Instagram. If it’s just a meal for 2 at a a new hipster cafe, simply standing up will capture everything. But what if you are with 4 or 5 others, or even at a buffet spread? You’ll have to stand up on a chair, and that’s embarrassing – and really rude.
How about using a Selfie Stick instead? Good Selfie Sticks that are a meter or longer can reach higher when propped on a table than you can when standing. This enables you to capture all that sumptious goodness – and even your friends and yourself!
3. Back Muscle Selfie
Every guy who has tried to take a gym progression selfie has experienced this: twisting and torquing your torso in the mirror trying to capture the gains in your back, angling two mirrors just to get a full profile of your lats. The fact is that our arms are simply too short to wrap around our body and still be able to get a great angle of our entire back.
We can overcome this biological flaw by using a Selfie Stick to extend the camera further behind us.
This will give you a wondrous, full-profile picture of all the striations, width, and thickness you’ve worked so hard to possess!
4. Take Belfies
A belfie – or butt selfie – is the female equivalent of the ‘lats shot’ for men. Similarly, this angle is very hard to achieve without setting a timer or asking someone to take it for you. However, take a look at how professional models overcome this challenge with Selfie Sticks:
Just crop out the handle and you’re good!
5. 360-degree Panoramas
Because the length of the Selfie Stick allows you to capture so much, it is ideal for documenting snippets of your travel and vacations. Check out this cool montage a man created by splicing short clips of himself rotating a Selfie Stick at different parts of the world to create an illusion of teleporting through different destinations!
What better way to remember the wonders of the world than in full, panoramic, 360-degree video?
6. Save Lives
Okay, this one is a joke. But, seriously, you’ll never know when one might just save your life, as seen in this video in which a girl manages to get rescued by her Selfie Stick after getting caught in a riptide.
