The first time I saw a selfie stick, I was having a hard time just figuring what this accessory was, and what on earth it could be used for. If you live near a tourist spot, or have been watching a lot of Keeping Up with the Kardashians lately, you must have asked the same question. Unless, of course, you are a selfie buff yourself. Lately, selfie sticks have emerged to be more of an everyday accessory than an exaggerated tool. In this post, we look at some of the key selfie pole benefits.
- Makes It Possible for You to Take Group Photos – if you’ve been a selfie buff for quite some time, then you’ll understand very well that it’s quite difficult to take selfies featuring a group of people and still pull off a great photo. You might feel frustrated when you’re just trying to take a group selfie and then some of the faces come off looking weird. So how do you avoid this? A selfie pole makes it easier, and more possible, for you to take a great group selfie. You get more length, more angle and more options to take a great multiple-person selfie. Also, the selfie stick makes sure that no one from the group will be excluded from the photo.
- No More Talking to Strangers – conventionally, you’d stop a stranger and ask them to take a photo of you when you were in a really nice place. But with the advent of selfie-cameras, this trend is slowly dying. Since your smartphone is equipped with a great selfie camera, you don’t need to stop people in tourist spots and giving them instructions on how to make the photo look great.
- No Need for a Tripod – when you have a selfie stick, you’re good to go. You won’t need a tripod at all. A tripod is a 3-legged stand that keeps your camera stable. The bad things with tripods is that they are such a hustle to carry around. Unlike a selfie stick, which can easily be folded and carried just about anywhere.
All in all, a selfie stick is one of those key accessories that any photo-loving enthusiast will want to have around. There are scores of selfie stick brands in the market. When choosing for one to purchase, make sure that it’s long enough and that it can be connected to your smartphone wirelessly!
