If you have the means, I highly recommend picking one up.

AuthorSo . . . I’ve never been a fan of selfies. In my opinion (Legal disclaimer:  Not the opinion of Optima or Taylor Corporation), selfies are narcissistic . . . oh, look at me . . . how many likes can I get???   Ugh!

Now – enter, the selfie stick, a complete game changer!  Why?  Because you’re not taking a picture of yourself by yourself with a selfie stick. You will ultimately draw crowds typically made up of friends and possibly strangers too!  And that’s exactly what we experienced at EDPA Access 2016!  Which brings up the question – why is it a called a “selfie” stick then???

A few key things to keep in mind when using a selfie stick . . .

  • Chin up
  • Have more than one person or object in the picture
  • If you think it’s bad, it probably is so do it over…it doesn’t cost you anything but another click
  • Do not buy a cheap selfie stick. Pay the extra five bucks! (Cheap will only last one day, when you’ll need it for at least three. So trust me…pay the extra 5 bucks!)
  • Have fun – we sure did!   🙂

      I wish we had, Dave (I think) bought a couple of cheap selfie sticks, by the end of the night, both broke. I wish I would have brought my XZIBITS selfie stick, which is awesome, and now I have two! 🙂 Did you get my Facebook tag on Saturday? Thank you my friend! 🙂
