It is obvious, that a group photo, if you are in the group, cannot be done like a “selfie”. You are so used to taking photos of everyone with you in it, easily, like a selfie, so, then you are asked to do a group photo. There are 3 ways to do this:

HAVE SOMEONE ELSE DO IT FOR YOU:

Find some friendly person who looks like they are willing to do this for you. Have them hold it horizontally so that you can get the whole group in there for you. And, after they take your photo, ask them if they need you to help out with the same thing.

USE THE SELF TIMER MODE IN YOUR PHONE:

If you have never used a self timer, you should find it quite easy. Go into the “self Timer” mode on your camera setting, and then you should have a time selection, either 2 seconds or 10 seconds. To get the group photo, set it for the 10 seconds, and then press the button, as if you were going to take the picture. You should then see it count down to 0. During that time it gives you the timing to run around and get in the picture with the rest of the group. It is so worth it. But, make sure the group fits in your frame before you take the picture.

I have a little stand built in to my case so that I can set the camera up easily. Just a flat surface is all I need. If you take a lot of pictures of people, I would highly recommend that you get a protective case for your phone that has a stand in it.

Use the “pencil” that came with your phone:

There are a few brands that have a “stylus” or pen that comes with the phone. There is also a button on most of those pens. You can use that button on the pen as a remote trigger button. Just take the pen or stylus with you as you get in the group, and press the button on the stylus, and ”VOILA” you have just taken the picture.

Just don’t miss any opportunity to take group photos because you don’t know how. Now you know how. Practice it a few times before you have to really do it. It’s so worth capturing that memory.
