Tips on taking proper outfit photos on your phone

I've been terrible with oufit photos and selfies in general. I take them either at an arms lenght with the selfie camera, or I take them with the mirror. The results have not been very good, to be honest, and end up disproportionate. I recently read from some blog, that the best way to take outfit photos is to balance the camera on something at waist height, and use a timer with a burst mode. If the camera is higher, your feet will look small compared to your head, and if it is lower, your legs will look huge and but your head tiny. Hence always take photos so that the camera is waist height! I can't believe it took me this long to learn!

Since I use a Huawei phone, I have the Android operating system. I found an app in the Play Store called Timer Camera. It's free, and it's easy to use. You can set a timer and a burst mode, meaning the camera will take several pictures consequtevily. I've been playing around with it now, I like a delay for the timer at 10 or 15 seconds, and I set the burst at 20 photos, 1 second apart each. I don't have a proper stand for my phone yet, so I actually balance it on top of the laundry basket leaning against a vase! :D Here are my first results of taking full body outfit photos.

A super simple outfit with high waisted jeans, a black knit jumper and Tamaris heels. The outfit doesn't really matter, but it seems I've found a better way to take outfit photos! Looks better, doesn't it?
