How to Photograph Yourself Easily for Posing.

its pretty irritating to run back and forth to pose for the camera before the timer on the camera runs out.
you get tired of posing--run back to camera--posing--run back to camera
same process again and again
well what i usually do is put my camera on video and just pose a bunch of times.
after that i would upload the video and edit it on windows movie maker.
i would click the camera snapshot button on the bottom right of the video screen to create pictures from the video.

for example, the picture from the video i did for my photoshoot is at the very top
and the video is at the bottom which i did for the photoshoot (the video is horizontal b/c i hung the camera by its string on a door knob; LOL)
although, i only do these once in a while because the quality of the pictures aren't as good because they are from a fuzzy video. you would just have to edit the pictures very well on photoshop or on

which is a free and awesome picture editing site (i edit all my pictures from there).

this is my second time doing this method.
its good if you want to do a simple and quick photoshoot, if you're pretty good at photoshop or editting pictures, or if you want to capture movement like my hair in this picture.

the first time i did this method was a while ago for my chicblog.
The pictures came out pretty well (which i took for chictopia on an outfit).
