Hey guys, I know how challenging it can be to get a good pic when you are by yourself. Here is what I do with my iPhone.

Start a selfie video with your phone. Prop it up somewhere about waist high. Now, as the camera is rolling hold your fish and walk closer to your phone. Once you get close move the fish back & forth slowly toward the camera and then away. Now you have a short video that you can then go back frame by frame until you find the best one and screen shot it.

This can all be done in less than one minute and it is the best way to get a good pic of your fish. This is much better than holding the fish in one hand while extending your arm holding the phone with the other.

Here is an example of one. Still not perfect but much better than trying to hold the phone & the fish at the same time. Don't be hating on my hat!

Simply flip the screen and use a timer. Eye-phone has a 3 or 10 second timer

That works too but you only get one frame. Shoot a 10 sec video and you get 30 frames

2 weeks ago I hung a big one. Ain't gonna lie I was spun. I tried the video deal and was good, so I released her and kept going. When I got home and looked, I had hit the button twice and didn't record a damn thing....

Math check... 300 frames - 10x30. roflmao
Shoot in HD, you can get 600 or 700 frames!

OK, OK, OK... I guess I was wrong about PhotoBucket being out of business.
