No tripod? Can't trust somebody else to lend them your camera and snap back at you? Want to capture the beautiful landscape with yourself on the foreground? Here's a simple tip.
During our previous trips, we had realized that most of our photos only include either myself or herself on the photos. We never had one with both of us in the picture.
We do not have a Lomo Fisheye camera nor a tripod (and a LONG release cable) to help us project ourselves from the camera – but I have the Horizon Kompakt. Ho! Ho! Ho! (mischievous laughter)
Step 1 – Find a good location; either your favorite spot on your backyard, the most colorful building near your office, or the Eiffel Tower.
Step 2 – Take out your Horizon Kompakt (or Horizon Perfekt) and ask your friend to position the camera with you and the subject foreground behind. Don’t forget to leave out some space for your friend so that when she joins the frame, she’ll be included. I usually push the camera at an arm’s length, and slightly tilt it upwards (just nice) so that your arms will not be included in the frame.
Step 3 – smile and snap! :D
