I confess! I cannot model for the life of me! When people tried to take a photo of me, I would freeze up and I will not know what to do. However, I can be a poser when there is no one around but my trusty tripod and the camera.
How do I take self-portraits? Since I have Sony, Sony’s phone remote control is terrible! I can’t hide my phone within 2 seconds and the focus is a crap shoot! The most frustrated phone remote control ever! Basically, I use 10 seconds timer with a higher aperture. My aperture is usually at f3.5 or f4.

As a photographer, I can never be 100% satisfied with my photos because I always think, “I can do it better than this.”
