The one hard part of traveling alone is finding ways to take photos of yourself. I discovered a rather easy way to take photos and get exactly the images I want.
To get a photo of yourself (without having to take a selfie) film a video and take screenshots of the video (example below). Use things in your surrounding (or perhaps a bag you have) to lay you phone against.
Check out the video below to see how I took my photos:
If you don’t want to go the video route you can always use a self timer.
P.S. You might feel uncomfortable the first time you are taking photos of yourself in public. Trust me, you’ll get used to it the more you do it. You’ll find that nobody really pays attention when you are taking photos of yourself and even if they do they probably don’t think much of it.
