As you may soon realize, taking “selfie’s” with your cell phone is not the best way to take photos of you or a small group. They all look the same after while.

If you want to be a real “photographer” with your smart phone, you would try taking your “selfie’s” using a tripod. Take a look at some of these tripods, made just for cell phones:

54″ Cell Phone Tripod with Rechargeable Remote, Aluminum Lightweight Travel Tripod with Extendable Tripod Stand, Phone Holder and Carry Bag, for Cellphones/GoPro/Digital Cameras

Just a note: I know you are thinking tripods are supposed to be sturdy. These tripods are made lighter so you can carry them around easier. And remember, you are not putting on a big huge camera. It’s just the weight of a cell phone. So for $10.99 this is a great deal.

Phone Tripod Stand & Selfie Stick Tripod, Sosirolo 62″ All in One Extendable Cell Phone Tripod with Wireless Remote and Phone Holder, Flexible Cellphone Tripod for iPhone/Android/Camera

With these tripods, your photos will quit looking like “selfie’s” and start looking like real portraits.

I believe all cell phones have a “self timer” in it. Just put the camera on the tripod for cell phones, and frame the image on your phone, and picture where you will be, and then set the self timer, and run around and put yourself in the picture. And now a real nice “selfie”, with some real class!

Now, we want to see your photos that you take with your smart phone or cell phone. Just send your photos to:

8 Pointers to Help You Travel and See the World Virtually with Ease:

Just as we were nursing some hope of the world going back to normal and possibly, travel opening up again, we were hit by another news:

A delta variant, really?

For the past several months, a lot of people have been locked in a place – and they would love to explore now. Even if they were not naturally travelers before, all that has changed.

If the current indications are anything to go by, though, that is not going to happen anytime soon.

Fortunately, you don’t have to leave your location physically to explore the world anymore.

Where can you go?

With virtual travel, anywhere.

The best part of this deal is that more virtual travel platforms, services, concepts, and ideas are coming up daily.

Depending on your interests and hobbies, here are some of the most intriguing options to pursue:

  • Museum tours – check out the various museum tours that Google has on its Arts and Culture section, for example. Top museums worldwide are also hosting private virtual tours that take you through the ins and outs of the establishment like you were there.Safari exploration – join a safari tour to enter the hearts of Africa, taking in the wild and enjoying the magnificence of those animals without any of the risks or costs involved.Get underwater – the Great Barrier Reef experience allows you to swim alongside some of the biggest sharks in the world, stealing a sneak peek at the underwater world and coming back in a dry suit still.Get random – with Window Swap, for example, you can dive in and automatically get teleported to any number of windows all around the world. See the world via someone’s window, getting into what’s happening in Greece, what a typical day in Singapore looks like, and more.

    Making the most of virtual travel

    Before you get on your first virtual travel experience, these tips will help you enjoy yourself better:

  • Choose what interests you – or check out something that you have been curious about. You only have to search – and you’ll find a way to see another part of the world from your home.
  • Get your gears ready – if you were streaming a documentary, for example, your internet-enabled device would be all you need. For some more immersive experience, you might need VR gear.
  • Ensure you have access – some virtual tours are location restricted, and you don’t want to find out too late. If you still want to go on them, download a VPN and connect to the supported server location to gain access.
  • Enjoy – although the experience won’t be as immersive as being there in person. If you give yourself to the program, though, we can promise that you’ll truly enjoy every bit of it.

    Final Thoughts

    Virtual travel is not the same as physical travel, granted, but this half loaf is truly better than none.

    While we allow the world to heal and everything else to recover, virtual travel gives us a window to escape to other worlds beyond our current reach. That, we can say, is a laudable and judicious use of all the tech around us.

    DAY 5 – OF THE LAUNCH OF “SMARTPHONE” – SMART PHOTOGRAPHER, Plus, Learn about the newest cell phones!

    Photo by Paul Hanaoka on Unsplash

    Welcome to the launch of ”SMARTPHONE – SMART PHOTOGRAPHER” Website. A place where those who love their cell phone can come to.

    We have had 4 days of learning about how to take better photos with your cell phone. One thing this website is going to do as well, is to keep you up to date with the newest cell phones coming out from the different manufactures. The end of the year provides new models as the world gets ready for Christmas. Let’s take a look at what is coming out:


    (Pocket-lint) – Samsung announced the Galaxy Z Flip 3 during its Galaxy Unpacked event on 11 August, succeeding the Galaxy Z Flip and Z Flip 5G that went before it.

    Though the main design remains similar, there are a couple of upgrades in the new model, as you would expect.

    Here is how the Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G compares to the Galaxy Z Flip 5G.

    The introduction of these new “flip” phones from Samsung has been a huge success for Samsung

    The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G retains a similar clamshell design to the Galaxy Z Flip 5G and the original Z Flip, with a horizontal fold, but it makes more of the front display.

    The dual cameras on the outside of the device are more prominent, and there is a larger cover display, with a more seamless design overall. The Z Flip 3 is also IPX8 water resistant and has a tougher aluminium frame.

    There are seven colour options for the Z Flip 3, including Cream, Green, Lavender, Phantom Black, Gray, White and Pink. It also has a glass back, like the previous models, though the Z Flip 3 has Corning Gorilla Glass Victus protection.

    The Galaxy Z Flip comes in Mystic Bronze and Mystic Gray colour options, while the LTE model has pretty much identical measurement to the Z Flip 5G but comes in Mirror Purple, Mirror Black and Mirror Gold. The Z Flip 3 is slightly shorter and narrower than its predecessors, but weighs the same.

    Neither the LTE or 5G model are water resistant, and they both have a small cover display that is positioned alongside the dual camera.

    Nokia X50

    New Nokia X50

    Although there have been many rumours surrounding a Nokia 9 PureView replacement, the trail seems to have gone cold, instead suggesting that Nokia might launch a Nokia 8.3 replacement with five cameras – and possibly called the Nokia X50. This could have a 6.5-inch display, run Snapdragon 700 series hardware and have a 108-megapixel main camera. There are rumours of a September or October launch event.

    Apple iPhone 13


    A couple of early rumours have hinted at Apple reducing the notch on the display, with some also saying that Apple will adopt an under-display fingerprint scanner. It’s also thought the mini model might be dropped. There might be a boost to a 48-megapixel camera to support 8K video capture.

    That’s 3 new models that are coming out soon. It’s interesting to see what they are doing to improve the phones, and a lot of them are coming out with even better cameras than ever. Just makes you want to stay with this website, so you can get the latest tips on how to take great photos with these new amazing cameras!

    With that in mind, I will keep you up to date as new models come, and new tips on how to take better photos. Make sure you sign up now for email notifications:

    DAY 4 – OF THE LAUNCH OF “SMARTPHONE – SMART PHOTOGRAPHER” Plus, learn how to watch your backgrounds!

    Welcome again to the launch or “SMARTPHONE – SMART PHOTOGRAPHER”. You know we love our cell phones. We eat with it, we sleep with it, we take it to work, it has really become a major part of our lives. And now this cell phone of ours is a camera. And, you know the phone manufactures have made it so that these phones take great, great pictures. Most people will never enlarge or make photos to hang on the wall. The resolution of cell phone cameras keeps people away from making enlargements.

    However, the regular camera manufactures are constantly improving the overall resolution of their cameras, and so are the cell phone manufactures. So, this cell phone, if you notice, takes amazing photos. My goal in this blog is to help you enjoy taking pictures, and help you make your pictures better.

    Before you snap the photo, looks what’s in the background

    This takes practice, to take a moment and look all around your screen and see exactly what you capture on your phone. We get so concentrated about the subject, we fail to look at the clutter in the background.

    This girl needs to have corrective surgery, and stop that water spout from coming out of her head. In some cases the background can totally ruin a good photo. Take your time and look at the whole picture. You will be glad you did.

    So, you looked around and found there is no trees or statues growing out of his head, and then your photo has the big LIGHT coming from behind. How did that happen? Well, that’s a picture you may not notice unless, the first thing you do is to look where the sun is before you take the photo. If it’s behind your person at all, you may just get a light flare like this one above. Be aware of where your light is at all times. Easily fixed by just moving the camera angle.

    One more thing that you need to be aware of, and this again, is just looking at everything in your picture before you take it. But, make sure when you take a picture of people, that they don’t have their heads cut off. She has really nice hair, I think.
