Not just for selfies
Readers of this blog will know that I am not the biggest fan of the selfie. Quite often it smacks of atavism and seems to treat some of the world’s finest buildings as no more than a backdrop for a grinning picture of themselves. When Anker supplied the product below, I was not altogether sure what I was going to do with it.
Initial results were every bit as daft and awkward as I expected them to be.
However, once I started experimenting with the stick as a 1-metre long arm, all sorts of possibilities came to mind. I could capture the spectacular architecture of the building where I work:
I could even photograph a whole room from one corner.
If you want to extend your photographic reach, I can recommend swallowing your bias against such things ( as I have had to do) and giving them a try.
