Activate The Camera Timer
Place your camera or phone on an even surface where it can be placed firmly. Set the timer, and start to position yourself with your desired pose in front of the cam, smile, wait for the click, and voila! The photo was taken! As simple as that. Check if it was your desired output, and you can do it again, anytime and anywhere you want.
This may sound lame, but this is a very creative way to capture the moment. If you if you really don’t have any other choice, you can shoot a short video of yourself. Save and watch it. Then just pause it and take screenshots and then save it. It may not result in the best quality picture, but if you’re an editing expert, your skills can do a miracle. Edit the screenshots and you might be surprised by the output.
Capture Your Other Body Parts Dramatically
You might be aware of the fact that when traveling alone, you can’t always capture a whole body picture of yourself. So why not capture some of your body parts? Just to show that you were actually there? How about your feet on the sand? To show that you’re on a beach. Or, a finger heart sign along the horizon? That would be very deep and beautiful. Just couple it with a dramatic edit and you’ll surely love the outcome.
Ask A Friendly Stranger Or A Fellow Traveler
This may be the easiest way of capturing the best picture of you when traveling alone. You might be surprised that some strangers can be very enthusiastic to take a photo of you! You never know, they may become your best travel buddies for a lifetime.
