- We are living in the selfie era, and no matter where you go, or what you do, a selfie is a must! Some of you may hate the whole idea of selfies in general, I know my hubby gets tired of me taking them! But as soon as I pulled out this cool little gadget, he took it over and played with it. Now we carry our selfie stick in the car for when we are out and about and want to take our photo together. It's a much more positive experience when I'm not chasing him down to get his photo.
This seems to be the case for any camera shy person. I have a mom friend who tells me that she can never get her kids to smile for photos, let alone sit still long enough to even be in the photo. I told her about our selfie stick and showed her how to use it. She took it home and again, much like my husband, her kids were enamored with this "new toy". She gets plenty of photos now!
- It has become a common way of taking photos in Europe (they even have corner street vendors selling them) and it is picking up here in the States quite fast. Sometimes your arms just can't reach overhead to get a good group shot, and the selfie stick does the deed. Once the stick is out, your friends will be amazed with this cool device. I'm pretty sure they'll want one, too. I remember showing a few of my photographer friends, and they laughed at it of course, but once they pressed that button, they were hooked.
So, you see why selfie sticks are the answer to your prayers? They are addicting to even the most camera shy kids, men, and friends. Imagine baby crying beforehand, and look at how still he will hold for you when he sees the selfie stick. It's now just more than just taking a photo. It's taking a photo with a gadget in hand. No matter how ridiculous you look, everyone just basically laughs it off. Why not? It's a global phenomenon that has become molded with this generation. Young or old, anyone can learn how to use one.
