One tool that I like the most of my camera’s is the WIFI function. Sometimes I want to make a self portrait or another shot where I really need a remote. Nowadays the most cameras have the built-in WIFI option, so after downloading the app of your camera brand you can start shooting!
As you can see in the image above, you can change the settings in the app. I always mount my camera to a tripod and switch my camera to the manual mode. On my phone I see how the image will look so it’s super easy to decide what settings (ISO, aperture and shutter speed) are the best. For self portraits I switch to the timer mode, mostly I use 6 seconds so I have enough time to click the shutter button on the screen and to let my phone disappear from the shot :)
If I use daylight I’m standing in front of the window so I know the light is just soft and natural. The photos were made with an aperture of f/2.8, so my face is sharp and the background is a bit blurred. But not to much, because I like to show the details of my studio in the background.
This was a very easy trick for all bloggers or Instagrammers if you need a quick self portrait!
