  • Anker 40W 5-port USB charger (~$26). Great for charging multiple devices, and it'll act like like a 12W charger for the iPhone 6/6 plus (faster charging) and iPad. It also comes in white if you need to color-coordinate. :)

  • Most people don't need one, but this Anker 10000mAh USB battery (~$26) is pretty nice, too. It's about the same size as an iPhone 6, but about 0.65" thick. While Anker has a wide range of batteries, I like this one because of the size, relative flatness (some batteries seem bulbous), and slightly recessed power button (some are raised, which makes accidental pressings easier in a backpack).

    However, while this can charge an iPhone multiple times, it will not fully charge an iPad (maybe 0.8 of a full iPad charge?).

  • Gorillapod stand (~$16). Useful for portable time-lapse videos.

    (I have no connection to Anker, other than as a customer.)

    Edit: fixed link to battery

I do a LOT of production for major television networks. I often have to help amateurs learn the basics for simple shoots.

Let's pretend you're using your cell phone camera (which is fine for most things like this).

Photography/Video basics:

  1. Never have a light source behind you. (if you stand in front of a window or the sun is at your back then you will show up as a black blob.)

  2. DO NOT SHOOT VERTICAL VIDEO. It won't showcase well on any television or computer. Plus it's hard to frame up two people vertically unless you're a mile back. If you are doing something SPECIFICALLY for snapchat or instagram then vertical is fine. Don't record the whole thing in vert.

  3. Audio will be a nightmare. Plan to use music instead of the actual audio... if you find a quiet place to perform than use the actual audio from there. Have your camera person be quiet. You don't want them laughing and talking over you.

  4. Shoot wide. She needs to get you and the spectator in the shot. Nobody wants just close ups of hands or heads chopped off of bodies... remember you want to see the performance AND reaction.

  5. Feel free to move the camera around, but try to keep it steady while doing so. Hand-held is fine, but flopping the phone around or running to a new vantage point during a trick is bad.

  6. GoPro's are great, but will be fisheye no matter what. I'd suggest a phone for maximum usability. Really only use GoPro for artsy angles once in a while. Or sit it on the edge of a table to get a super wide pov.



    TECH STUFF:

  7. set your camera to 4K resolution and 24fps (if available). This will give you a file that is four times HD so you can crop out stuff and push in as needed to give a second camera effect. It will take up a LOT of space so dump it off of your phone at the end of each day (also make sure your phone has a lot of space left before you start filming).

  8. Bring a hard drive with you. You'll fill up a laptop... bring a drive with lots of room for 4K footage.

  9. Don't cut during a trick. Record for 10 seconds before you start and at least 10 seconds afterwards. You don't want to stop the video as soon as you finish. You want plenty to work with in the edit bay. Also if you cut from one camera to another during a trick it gives the viewer a spot to say "Hey, he just did some tricky camera shit." Let them see the whole performance in one take.

    -----------------

    Buy a cheap phone grip, selfie stick, monopod, or stabilizer... It'll help with her fatigue over a 8 min trick. That's a long time to hold your arm up with a phone. These guys will wrap around poles and hang from anything. In addition having a cheap pistol grip will do wonders for stabilizing.

    Make sure to buy one you can attach a phone mount or GoPro to. A monopod is a great way to set up the shot you want, hit record, then babysit it without fatigue. It will wobble when you hit record, so give it a few seconds to calm down before you start. This is the best bang for your buck. It allows an unmanned view and can be used as a stabilizer AND see over crowds or over your shoulder.
u/Truant_Muse · 5 pointsr/femalefashionadvice

This might sound silly, but if you have a newer iphone you can take pretty good pictures with it using the self timer. I use a wine glass, just set your phone in it, it is the perfect size that allows the camera part of the phone to show out the top and stabilizes the phone while it shoots.

You can also buy tripods for your phone.

I wrote this guide for better nude and erotic mobile photography a couple years ago, and even though you’re talking about a DSLR camera, many of the tips are more than applicable. Enjoy, and have fun!

Photo Tips for Mobile Phones

  • Ensure good lighting - if you don't have other gear and a phone is all you have, keep the lights up in the room and use natural light where possible. This will prevent photos from being underexposed and/or grainy and gritty. You can even strategically use some lamps or smaller lights closer to your body while keeping the room lights down.
  • Use the phone's rear camera at all times. Though it may seem convenient to use the front facing camera so you can see the shot you're taking, it's not as high quality a camera as the rear camera.
  • Crop photos, don't zoom to take them. Digital zooming on a mobile phone degrades the photo quality. You're better off cropping a photo you've taken that wasn't zoomed when you took it.
  • Use a tripod of some kind. The Gorrilapod is a great option since it can stand freely on its own or be wrapped around something (headboard, chair beside bed or couch, ceiling fan for a birds-eye view, etc). JOBY GripTight GorillaPod Stand - Flexible Universal Smartphone Stand for Small Smartphones including iPhone 6, iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B009GHYMB6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_1J8Xzb16X8FCC
  • Use a remote control to take photos, like this: CamKix Wireless Camera Shutter Remote Control for Smartphones – Create Amazing Photos and Selfies (Blue) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0113W5ZOO/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_ZK8Xzb1N6CVZD This allows you to position the camera, and be at a distance from it, and freely press the shutter release button on the remote to take photos. In conjunction with a 3 or 10 second timer, this gives you plenty of time to trigger the photo, conceal the remote, and pose for your photo.
  • Use focus lock when you're going to be at a distance from the camera. A great way to do this is to place an object on a bed (or wherever you are taking photos), such as a pillow, that will be approximately where your body will be. Think of the pillow as a torso - will you be focusing primarily on your lower torso (ex: below belly button) or upper torso (ex: chest)? Focus lock on those approximate areas, or somewhere in between to ensure consistent focusing. Lock focus on this, then get in position and fire away with the remote.
  • When taking fully nude photos, remove underwear about 45 minutes to an hour before you take photos. This helps prevent panty lines, and bra strap lines from being visible on your skin.
  • Photo Editing Apps: Don't overuse them, but sometimes it's fun to explore editing and consider making black and white photos out of color photos. VSCO Cam is one of the leading apps out there, with film simulation presets to quickly set a certain mood and tone for photos.

    Photo Inspiration
  • Subtlety tends to keep people wanting more. People enjoy what they can imagine; it's a great build up to full reveals or more detailed / graphic photos. Photo albums that run from clothed to unclothed to posing to touching always excite people.
  • Explore sites with great nude photography, like www.kindgirls.com, for example, for inspiration on poses, outfits, etc. It's fun to find a photo gallery you like and take a shot at emulating each of the photos.

    Safety
  • Always be cautious and careful of what you post that reveals personally identifiable details, face photos, etc. Some of the bigger subs warn about "what goes on the Internet stays on the Internet." Many people don't foresee the risk in revealing themselves to a degree that they can be identified.
  • Learn how to remove EXIF data from photos so there are no identifying details, such as location, lingering in the photos. On the iPhone, I suggest the app called “Investigator” to clear EXIF data.
u/akimbojimbo229 · 5 pointsr/Bowling

Glad you figured out what's going wrong! :)

Also, I can't echo your conclusion enough: stringent critiquing of video of yourself is an AWESOME way to practice. There's a couple sizes of smartphone-sized Gorillapods (small and large) that make this super easy to do.

u/fanserviced · 4 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Totally!!!! And it's cheap-ish! Amazon link. My photos got better once I used it with a Gorillapod (Amazon link).

u/ImAtleastTwelve · 4 pointsr/malefashionadvice

Time to kick your selfie game up a notch

u/jk147 · 3 pointsr/tennis

You are probably better off just buying a GorillaPod for phones, only 17 bucks.

u/TriggerPixie · 2 pointsr/pokemongo

Amazon and I think I paid ~$15 for it.

Heads up though it could definitely use an extra rubber cause it's not the most secure thing in the world

u/balls187 · 2 pointsr/OkCupid

Here is a less than $10 solution.

u/juniortennisplayer2 · 2 pointsr/tennis

We don't use a lens clip, just a stock iPhone.

We use this specific clamp: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B009GHYMB6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awd_GOuHwbDNV9VXX

Usually my friend will have a small ladder or stepping stool to get the angle facing down just right. I recommend setting the clamp a little bit higher than the top of your reach (to get tosses of serves on the near side), but you'll need to play around a little to get optimal footage.

We normally record the warm up and check the angle of the video before starting the set. :)

u/nevergreen · 2 pointsr/TeenMFA

you can also get a tripod for your phone like this one. if you don't have anywhere to prop your phone against this could come in handy plus it's not expensive

u/benryves · 2 pointsr/windowsphone

I'd recommend getting a phone mount with a tripod screw hole so you can use any tripod. I have the Joby GripTight mount and though it is more expensive than some of the other offerings it is about the only one I could find that would work for the Lumia 925 (it straddles the lock button and opens wide enough - a lot of the cheaper options grip the phone in the middle, which would hit the lock button, or only open wide enough for the smaller iPhone). It grips the phone securely and feels like a quality item that justifies the higher price.

As for tripod recommendations, the Velbon DF-61 is very good value for money though being a full-size tripod may be a bit on the large size to carry with you on holiday. I have heard good things about the GorillaPod (and that particular item seems to come with the GripTight mount mentioned earlier) though have not used it myself.

u/miden24 · 2 pointsr/lgg5

i got the large one

Honestly I never used a gorilla pod before and I didn't know what to expect. I actually got this yesterday and still currently playing around with it. Sorry.

u/Davedamon · 2 pointsr/mattcolville

I think they use these, or something similar

GorillaPod Stand for Smartphones

u/Cinnadom · 1 pointr/crossfit

I have this mount, got it as a gift for christmas last year.

I never use the thing anymore, I use a simple tripod mount with a phone mount instead. The large issue with this is the orientation of the phone in the mount. If you're putting it onto a squat rack, the phone is always in the vertical orientation. It has to be on top of bottom of something to be horizontal like most videos are shot. Also if there are square racks set up, you can't rotate the phone at all at an angle unless you move the racks themselves. So you're pretty limited to where you can set up the phone.

I just bought a flexible tripod mount and use that anywhere I'm at. Is cheaper than the perchmount and able to be used in many more types of locations.

u/jesseholmz · 1 pointr/AskWomen

i think the stuff i got is possibly "higher" quality, not sure if it really matters in this case. i got this tripod and this remote but yeah i can return them if i don't like them i think, the stand will be here tomorrow so i'll check it out

u/tollydog · 1 pointr/Guitar

Haha no, not quite duct tape but by using one of these

I doubt it'll work for all guitars but luckily it works on mine!

u/bleeatch · 1 pointr/somethingimade

Or just pay $18 and buy the Joby tripod already with a cell phone holder. It works great!

Here’s a guide I give to people not necessarily about posting, but about taking photos. It does however include details on anonymity and such:

I’d even go as far as having a blanket and pillow you use in photos that you don’t use in anything else.

u/whatrosasaid · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I think I may get this tripod, so I can do more video stuff with my phone. Wholesome video stuff. Comedy stuff. dig the whole deeper, Rosa.


But I'm also eyeing this paired with this so I can start focusing relaxing at home, and maybe it'll convince me to clean my room. MAYBE.

You need one that comes with a camera tripod mount. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B009GHYMB6

Or buy a camera tripod mount separate.
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01EBEPDO8

Or just get a modestly priced tripod and a tripod mount.

I use a Joby GorillaPod Stand to record on my phone. Works great and a good investment if you plan to record yourself a lot over time. I've had mine for a few years and it still holds well.

u/pligg · 1 pointr/oneplus

You can get a cheap device like this from Amazon, which will hug the sides of the phone to hold it in place and add a standard 1/4" tripod mount to the bottom. If you want an all-in-one kit, the Joby Griptight Gorillapod is a good option for $17.
