Which has made me mighty familiar with the self-timer mode on my camera, as I don't have a tripod I made myself a little something to help with self portraits.
It's a bean bag. Only with rice and not beans. And it means that I can jam my camera weird places and not worry about it plummeting to it's camera-y doom. And I can kill the flash and up the exposure time too. This one was made with a toddler t-shirt sleeve and about a cup of basmati. It's portable and it took SECONDS to make. The "tute" is over at my blog but really, it's a beanbag, 3 sides, some rice, done!
Now If I could just find a pose that isn't SUPER AWKWARD I'd be a happy girl.
