The proliferation of selfies that are posted online is due, in most part, to the ease people have to take pictures of themselves using their smartphones. This phenomenon has led to new products that can be used by anyone who is interested in photography. One example is the selfie stick. If you do not want to spend money on this product, then you can make your own DIY selfie stick.

In a nutshell, the selfie stick is pole that that’s capable of holding a camera which allows the holder to snap their own photo. Typically people want to connect their smartphone or mobile device to the pole so they can take photo when non one else is around to help them. Selfie sticks are super popular with photographers, bloggers and travelers.

A simple DIY selfie stick can be made from various materials. However, the best design for this item is a telescoping rod. This can include a light stand used by photographers or a rod that is used with a tarp or canopy. You can easily find a pole for your DIY selfie stick at a local thrift store. Another option is a used photography light stand from a second hand store.

You can mount any type of device to a DIY selfie stick. The best option will be to make a bracket for a smartphone or iPod that has a camera function. You will require a screwdriver, a hex wrench, and a few other supplies to complete this project.

A smartphone or mobile device that is mounted on a DIY selfie stick will mean you are not able to take a picture normally. This will not be a problem as most devices have a timer that you can set when there is a need to take a selfie. You may even be able to find an app for this purpose.
