    I use snap seed a lot too- thank you for sharing with us! So here’s a question- what do you use to hold your camera for the self-timer?

      I don’t use anything really. I just try to prop it up against something and hope that the wind doesn’t blow it over (which is does…often). It’s probably not the safest way to go. Sometimes, if it’s a yoga photo, I’ll use my sneaker and prop my phone up in there. I’ve heard other people use heavy bottom glass which works if you’re at home.

    I use VSCO Cam like CRAZY. But it’s the photoshop-user in me that loves the control with all the adjustments. I usually pull it into that first, then if I need to add text, open it in Pic Lab.

    I love that you use multiple apps on a single shot… me too! I need to start playing with the timer one… something other than a selfie. LOL.

      I’ve been meaning to try VSCO Cam but I’m afraid that I’m going to go down the rabbit hole with that one! Sometimes I think it’s going overboard with the multiple apps but it’s more fun that way :-)

    I don’t use any of these! For my self timer pics I use TimerCam, not the best so I’m looking up all your recommendations. Thanks Christine! BTW – you totally had me fooled that you did that pose on the rocky ledge!

      ShakeCamera has worked fine for me and I don’t really have any complaints about it. I didn’t really think that people would think that I was actually standing on that ledge until I started seeing people’s comments! Then I started to feel badly that I was tricking people :-)

    This is truly awesome!! You always have great pics on Instagram and I’m so glad you’re sharing your secrets! I don’t use any of these right now (did not even know there were apps with timers!?) so you bet I will be downloading these ASAP! Look out Instagram!!

    Those are amazing photos! Heck I don’t even have a phone that will take pics very well (no data plan) let alone be able to edit them…however this makes me want to rethink that!

      These are fun apps to play with. I'd definitely recommend either SnapSeed or Tadaa. I hope you are well!!

    OK. 1. I love you for this post. Like big, red, puffy heart kind of love!!! 2. I love your insta feed. Like LOVE. 3. I thought you were absolutely freakin nuts when you posted that picture on the rocky ledge. It blew my mind.
